KNOWLTON, Wis (WSAU) A home in Knowlton was destroyed by fire early yesterday morning. It happened around 1am.
A woman who lives in the house said the fire started in the garage and quickly spread to the rest of the structure. The roof suffered heavy damage. Much of the water used to put out the fire also froze around the structure.
One person was treated for smoke inhalation, and has since been released.
The family moved into the home five months ago, and says eventually they will rebuild. The cause of the fire still isn't known.
