WESTON, Wis (WSAU) A duplex fire early Thursday morning on Jelinek Avenue in Weston was caused by an overloaded electrical outlet. The fire started in a garage below the living area of one of the units.
The family was asleep at the time. Their smoke detectors woke them up and alerted them to get out. No one was injured.
The damage estimate is at least $400,000 to one-half of the duplex. A fire-wall kept the flames from spreading to the rest of the structure. It suffered only minor smoke damage.
