A house fire in north-central Wisconsin claimed a life over the weekend. Taylor County authorities say a 71 year old woman died in the fire Friday afternoon in the Town of Westboro, north of Medford. Officials say the woman’s husband came home around 3:00 to find the house ablaze. He called 9-1-1, and told officials his wife was still inside the home. Fire officials determined the fire was accidental, because the woman had been smoking a cigarette near her oxygen supply.
