Upper Level Apartment Fire in Wausau Neighborhood


Around 11 P.M. Tuesday night, the Wausau Fire Department received a call about a house fire at 622 Humboldt Street, between N 6th and N 7th Streets.

Both fire and police crews responded, closing down all but one lane of traffic while the fire was put out.

Police say it was mostly confined to the exterior of the upper level apartment of the duplex, and that little to no damage was done to the lower level. One person was inside the upper level when the fire started, but was able to get out safely. The lower level residents were not home at the time of the fire.

Preliminary interviews with the upper level resident suggest that a cigarette could have been to blame for the fire, according to police.

The investigation is ongoing.
