Caledonia apartment fire leaves 1 dead, 1 critical


CALEDONIA, Wis. (AP) -- Caledonia police say an early-morning fire broke out in an apartment above a bar, killing one man and leaving a second in critical condition.

   Authorities responded to a fire call Saturday about 1:30 a.m.

   Emergency responders rushed two residents to the hospital. Fifty-three-year-old Mark A. Stroede was pronounced dead, while 48-year-old David L. Peters was in critical condition.

   Caledonia police Lt. Gary Larsen says there were about six people in the bar at the time of the fire. None was injured.
