WAUSAU (WAOW) -

Wausau Fire Chief Gary Buchberger says the fire that destroyed a Wausau home was the second blaze at the structure in February.

Buchberger says firefighters responded to a basement fire at the home on the 700 block of Park Avenue about two weeks ago.

Buchberger says the home, which was remodeled into at least two apartments, was vacant when fire broke out Tuesday afternoon. The cause remains under investigation.

The fire chief says the city inspected the home after the first fire and found many problems, causing it to be condemned.
