The homeowner said he and his wife started a fire in a burn barrel behind the garage hours before.

The garage was totally destroyed along with everything inside.

The fire is still being investigated.

TOMAH - The psychiatric unit at the troubled Tomah Veterans Affairs Medical Center should open next week, about nine months after it closed.

The VA was forced to close the unit in September because it didn't have enough health providers to staff it.  That meant 125 veterans had to be transferred to other facilities around the state.

Clinic administrators have spent the last few months recruiting staff and have hired a psychiatrist and two nurses.  That's enough to reopen the unit on a limited basis.

MADISON - A former high school basketball coach in central Wisconsin loses an appeal over his conviction for having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled 4-2 on Tuesday against Rory McKellips.

He's the former coach for girls' basketball at high schools in Athens and Mosinee.

He had been convicted in 2013 of using a computer to facilitate a sex crime.

That's because of cellphone contact he had with a player on the Athens High School team he coached.

The state Supreme Court said state prosecutors proved that McKellips used his cellphone as a computer to send messages to the victim.

He is serving a 10-year prison sentence.

WAUSAU - Roy Thorson tries to be as self-reliant as possible.  But when you live with spinal muscular atrophy, as the 14-year-old does, you can use a boost every once in a while.

Monday morning, Thorson joined up with Wasuau firefighters to announce the start of the Muscular Dystrophy Association's annual "Fill the Boot" campaign.

"Not many people in today's society take the time to help others, so it's great to see them," Thorson said of the firefighters. "They take a night of their time and they go out and raise money for people like me. That just means all the world to me."
