2 believed dead in rural Oneida Co. house fire

TOWN OF CASSIAN, Wis. (AP) - Authorities believe a husband and wife may have died in a fire that destroyed their home in rural Oneida County.

Crews were called just before 4:30 a.m. Tuesday to the large house about 20 miles west of Rhinelander. When firefighters arrived, they found the house engulfed in flames.

Sheriff's Lt. Lloyd Gauthier says authorities believe the couple who lived at the home may have died in the fire. Their vehicles were found in the garage, but the couple has not been found.

The state fire marshal's office is helping local authorities investigate.
