RHINELANDER - Piles of clutter in a Rhinelander basement helped fuel a big house fire this afternoon.
The home is on Carr Street, just off Lincoln Street.
Fire departments were called around one o' clock this afternoon to fight the fire.
"The fire started in the basement. The basement is full of debris, clutter. We could not make our way into the basement because of everything that's down there. We couldn't advance to the scene of the fire. Therefore, the fire advanced to the first and second floors," said Rhinelander Fire Chief Terry Williams.
One person was in the house, but got out with minor injuries.
People in Rhinelander could see the smoke from many parts of the city.
The fire department isn't yet sure what caused the fire.
MADISON - State attorneys have asked a federal judge to stay a ruling allowing people to vote without photo identification in November's election pending an appeal.
In Milwaukee this week, U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman issued a preliminary injunction allowing people who haven't been able to obtain IDs to vote in the Nov. 8 election if they sign an affidavit explaining why they couldn't get the identification.
