RHINELANDER - Rhinelander firefighters responded to a house fire off Boyce Drive early Sunday. The department got the call around noon.
Pine Lake and Pelican fire also responded. Firefighters say when they arrived they could see smoke coming out of the roof.
"We made entry and there was heavy smoke coming up the basement stairs which was right inside," said Rhinelander Fire Department Lieutenant Scott Rathbun.
The Rhinelander Fire Department says there was so much smoke that it was difficult to find the source of the fire.
"We went downstairs and found a lot of heat, a lot of smoke and we knocked down the fire," said Rathbun.
No one was in the home when the fire started. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
