LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - A teenage boy is in a burn unit in Madison following an apartment fire on the south side of La Crosse Sunday afternoon.
The La Crosse Fire Department was called to 1901 Miller Street around 3 p.m.
When firefighters arrived on the scene, the mother thought her son was missing. A search of the apartment failed to find the teen but were able to rescue a dog.
