Porch fire extinguished at La Crosse house

Brad Williams



An early morning house fire on 7th Street South has been confined to an enclosed porch.

Everyone in the house had evacuated before firefighters arrived, just after 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

A bystander used a fire extinguisher to help control the flames before the fire crews got to the house.

Firefighters found evidence of smaller fires at a neighboring house, and in a nearby alley.

Police and the fire investigation bureau are looking into those incidents.
