La Crosse fire fighters respond to house fire


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - La Crosse fire fighters responded to a house fire on the 100 block of North 16th Street just before 11:30pm Thursday night.

Fire fighters arrived on scene within 3 minutes and saw heavy flames coming from the second story of the house. Everyone in the house got out safely and were outside when fire fighters arrived. The fire caused no major damage to the home and was contained to a second story room where they believe the fire started.

"We were able to make a quick interior attack and knock the fire down before it spread to any other parts of the building," says Division Chief, Tom Wallerich.

"Our response time is often times is a little bit slower in the winter time cause obviously because of the roads and that sort of thing but all things considered, we had a good outcome and like I said the fire was contained to the room of origin."

Inspectors arrived on scene a short time later to investigate the fire.

No word yet on a cause.
