A fire in Stevens Point early last evening claimed a life. Fire crews were called to a garage fire on 6th Avenue around 6:45 p.m., and found the structure fully engulfed when they arrived. Crews were told there might be a person trapped inside, but because of the heat and smoke, they were not able to enter the structure to do a search. After they got the fire under control, fire personnel entered the structure and found the victim deceased. That person’s name has not been released. No firefighters were hurt in battling the blaze. Crews from Plover and the Town of Hull assisted at the scene. The cause of the fire has not been determined.
