WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) For the second time in a week, firefighters were called to a home on First Avenue in Wausau. The latest incident happened Sunday afternoon around 3pm. There was a fire in a bedroom near the back of the house.
Just last week there was a fire in the same home's basement. An auto lamp was being used as light source. It caught on fire, and the heat burst a water pipe and melted some of the home's exterior siding. Firefighters were able to keep it from spreading to the upper floor.
This latest fire caused limited damage. The cause is still under investigation.
