RIB MOUNTAIN, Wis (WSAU) A clothes dryer caused a house fire in Rib Mountain yesterday. It happened during the afternoon on Indigo Drive.
The home suffered heavy smoke and fire damage. The one woman who was home at the time made it out safely.
The Rib Mountain and Weston fire departments responded. Fighting the fire was difficult because the home was far back from the road and from the available water supply. Several hundred extra feet of hose were needed to put it out.
