TOWN OF CASSIAN - We now know for certain Kaye and Mark Juel died in yesterday's house fire near Harshaw.
The Oneida County Sheriff's Office confirmed they were inside the burned home on Partridge Lane in the Town of Cassian.
The two were involved members of the Oneida County community, and we spoke with both Kay and Mark on Newswatch 12 in the past.
Kaye was the Oneida County Jail administrator.
Mark was a Iraq war veteran who served two decades in the military.
Visitation for Mark and Kaye will be held Monday Feb. 18, from 4 p.m. to 7 a.m. at Carlson Funeral Home in Rhinelander.
The funeral will be at Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church in Harshaw on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 11 a.m.
Oneida County Sheriff Grady Hartman says, "We are deeply saddened by the tragic and sudden loss of Kaye and her husband Mark. All of the employees in the Sheriff's Office value and honor all of those who have served us in the public safety community and our thoughts and prayers will remain with Kaye and Mark and their families and many friends."
We still don't know the cause of the fire.
A preliminary investigation found no signs of criminal activity, and foul play is not suspected at this time.
RHINELANDER - Oneida County needs more foster care homes. Right now, there are nine licensed foster homes in the area, most of which are full according to the county's social services department.
Foster Care Coordinator Rachel Nelson says that in Oneida County there are 24 children currently living in foster homes. The department participated in a statewide foster care recruitment project last fall, and discovered just how great the need is.
RHINELANDER - A snow storm caught Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander off guard last weekend and collapsed a greenhouse. Now that spring weather is here, Hanson's is ready to move forward by making some adjustments. "We got by for 25 years doing what we were doing," said Hanson's Garden Village Co-owner Brent Hanson. Last weekend's spring snow storm set back Hanson's. "We thought we were ahead of schedule having that greenhouse nice and filled," said Hanson's Manager Beth Hanson.
"One bad storm and there you go. Things happen," said Brent. The storm collapsed a greenhouse holding thousands of plants. "For years we've gotten by with these lighter cheaper green houses," said Brent. "We'll be down a greenhouse for a little bit here," said Beth. Now Hanson's will only use sturdier and solid greenhouses so that collapses don't become a pattern.
