PINE LAKE - A family near Rhinelander lost their cat to a house fire this afternoon.

The fire started on the top level of this house on Harbor Road in Pine Lake around 2 P-M.

No one was injured, but they did lose a family cat.

Rhinelander, Pelican and Pine Lake Fire Departments responded to the call.

Pine Lake Fire Department Chief Brian Gehrig says the house is saveable, but the family won't be able to go back in anytime soon.

"Due to the damage in the bedroom the family will most likely have to relocate and find temporary shelter or different housing at this point." said Chief Gehrig.

We don't know what caused the fire, but the Pine Lake Fire Department is investigating.
