MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) -- A Merrill family lost their home to fire early Saturday. Firefighters were called out shortly before 3:00 a.m. to a residence on Wyant Avenue in the Town of Schley.

The family of five all got out safely, but their two dogs died in the fire. The parents and three children lost everything in the fire. They are now getting some help from the American Red Cross, which has given them temporary shelter and some clothing, shoes, and food.

Merrill and Pine River firefighters battled the blaze for nearly seven hours. The cause of the fire has not been determined.
