WAUKESHA — The Waukesha Fire Department responded to a
report of a small fire at Sendik’s Food Market on
Meadowbrook Road around 10:30 a.m. Thursday.
firefighters arrived the store was in the process of
evacuating patrons into the parking lot because the
building was full of smoke from a small fire in a
rooftop heating unit, said Waukesha Fire Battalion Chief
took over an hour to put out the fire and clear the
building of smoke, Haakenson said, adding that it’s
difficult to assess the cost of damage because
businesses that sell food are required to have their
inventory assessed before it can be sold after a fire.
