Story By WJFW News Team


MOSINEE - An early morning fire destroyed a central-Wisconsin duplex... but luckily no one was injured.

Crews responded to the house on 2nd Street in Mosinee around 2 a.m. People from both homes in the building were already outside.

But firefighters had to rescue several rabbits and a pet boa constrictor.

Crews think the fire started in the basement.

No one was injured in the fire. The house is a total loss and the Red Cross is helping the two families who now don't have a home.
