Three families were displaced by a weekend fire in the Town of Mukwa in Waupaca County. The blaze on Faskell Road destroyed one apartment and a garage, and knocked out power to the two other apartments, according to New London fire officials. The cause of the blaze remains under investigation, but authorities believe a portable space heater could be the cause. Two cats and a parakeet died in the fire. Eight area fire departments responded to the fire.
