Electrical fires are often treated as accidents in Milwaukee, but they are actually foreseeable tragedies with the government doing little to fix the problem, a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel investigation found. This work revealed that suspected electrical fires are not thoroughly investigated, even though they’re more deadly than other fires and fall hardest on Milwaukee's Black and low-income neighborhoods. In one such neighborhood, suspected electrical fires scorched homes at five times the rate of the rest of Milwaukee.
