WAUSAU (WAOW)-- Two families are now homeless, after a fire destroys their Wausau duplex. The blaze broke out at a home on the corner of Spruce Street and North First Avenue after 11a.m.  The flames devoured the front of the house, a place several people called home.

"Obviously, by looking at the structure you can see that this spread very fast. Which is unusual at this time of day. It got a jump on us. I think the structure is pretty much a major loss," says Battalion Chief of the Wausau Fire Department, Doug Beula.

Fire Fighters spent the rest of the day putting out hot spots. The cause of the fire remains under investigation. No one was hurt, although one family lost a pet.
