Three people killed in West Allis house fire

by

WEST ALLIS, WI (WTAQ) - Three people were killed late Thursday in a house fire in the Milwaukee suburb of West Allis.

Firefighters were called around 5:20 p.m. to a two-story structure.

The initial word was that four people were inside the house – but Acting Police Chief Charles Padgett later said that rescuers could only confirm three individuals. He said the rescue personnel could not search all parts of the house due to structural instability.

The ages and identities of the victims were not immediately released.

Padgett said the cause of the blaze remained uncertain Thursday night.

It’s the second fire in West Allis this year with multiple deaths. The first happened on March 17th, when two 14-year-old boys were killed -- Isaiha Kobow and Michael Gonzales.
