A fire in the Portage County Town of Hull caused extensive damage to a home early Thursday. Firefighters were called to the home around 9, and found a fire that had started in the garage, then spread to the home and attic. No one was hurt, and the cause of the blaze is under investigation.
Further west, in Jackson County, a mobile home was destroyed by fire Wednesday afternoon. Authorities say that fire, near Black River Falls, was spotted by a passerby. No one was home at the time. No cause has been determined, but authorities do say the home was being heated by a wood stove.
