RHINELANDER - We learned earlier this week two well-known people in Oneida County died tragically in a house fire.

Thursday, we heard some reaction from a person who worked closely with one of the victims.

Jail Administrator Kaye Juel and her husband Mark were killed in the fire at their home in Cassian early Tuesday morning.

The cause of that fire is still under investigation, but police think it was an accident.

Oneida County Sheriff Grady Hartman knew Kaye and spoke with her almost every day.

"Our entire office is deeply sadened by the sudden loss of Kaye and her husband Mark," Hartman said. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family as well as her many friends in this community. At this point we're just going to honor Kaye's memory, Mark's memory and take it one day at a time."

Kaye had been a member of the Sheriff's Office since 1983.

Mark was an Iraq war veteran and served in the military for two decades.

A visitation for Mark and Kaye will be held Monday from 4 to 7 p.m. at Carlson Funeral Home in Rhinelander.

WAUSAU - Pets add laughter, joy and tons of entertainment to the families they join. 

If those pets go missing it's an experience no family wants to go through. 

One woman in Wausau is making a difference for the pets and families in her community.

"I wanted to be the voice for the animals, because there aren't that many people that are like that out there," said Wausau Human Officer Ashlee Bishop.

Bishop started making a difference when she began working at the humane society when she was just fifteen years old. 

Last year she started the pet vaccine and micro-chipping event, to make sure animals in her hometown were healthy and safe.

"I have so many people that are thankful because their animals are home for the holidays," said Bishop.

The Humane Society says that one in three pets will get lost during its lifetime.

 The $10 microchips provided at the event increase the chances of lost pets being brought home.
