Man killed, woman injured after house fire in Rhinelander

by

RHINELANDER, WI (WTAQ) - A man was killed, and a woman was injured Wednesday in a house fire in Rhinelander.

Firefighters were called to the one-story structure just before 10:45 a.m.

Officials said the woman had fled the house, and she was taken to a hospital. A man was trapped in the home, and firefighters could not reach him in time to rescue him.

Firefighters from Pelican helped Rhinelander units put out the blaze. They spent over an hour putting it out.

The state fire marshal has been called in to help determined what caused the fire. The victims’ names were not immediately released.
