Story By Newswatch 12 Newsteam

MINOCQUA - A duplex in Minocqua is badly damaged by fire overnight, after two northwoods homes caught fire yesterday.

Crews responded to a home on Back Bay Road around 2 o'clock this morning for a fire in a duplex.

According the the Minocqua fire chief one side of the building was completely destroyed by the fire.

The resident was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

The other side of the duplex is still standing, but suffered heavy smoke and water damage.

Minocqua Fire Chief Andy Petrowski said the extremely cold temperatures make it difficult to draw water from the lakes-

So he called in Lac du Flambeau, and Arbor Vitae for back up.

He estimates the fire was out by 3:15 this morning.

They're still investigating the cause of the fire.

RHINELANDER - Our nervous system controls the whole show when it comes to our bodies, especially how they feel.

Chiropractic care is one method people use to keep that system moving.

Hometown Chiropractic is new to Rhinelander, but it's no stranger to the Northwoods; its main location is in Tomahawk.

People might think traumas like slipping on ice or car accidents are the only reasons to see a chiropractor.

Dr. Grace Zuiker Nash says you don't need to be injured to come in.

"We want to get those misalignments checked. Sometimes they don't show up as a major pain symptom.

They show up as something smaller and less obvious," says Dr. Grace.

Dr. Grace says she sees babies as soon as one day old.

That's because nervous system issues should be treated sooner rather than later.

"We as adults know that they don't feel good. We want the best for our kids and we don't want to see them go through that," says Dr. Grace.

Hometown Chiropractic always accepts new patients.
