RHINELANDER, WI (WSAU) - An early morning house fire Tuesday claimed two lives in Oneida County.
Five rural fire departments were called to 4623 Partridge Lane about 12 miles northwest of Rhinelander just before 4:30 in the morning yesterday. They found a house fully engulfed in flames. Oneida County Sheriff Grady Hartman says the Medical Examiner was called to investigate the exact cause of the death for the two people found inside.
Hartman says the house is owned by Mark and Kaye Juel, but he has not confirmed that they were the occupants who perished inside. The state Fire Marshall has been called in to help the Town of Cassian Fire Department determine what caused the deadly fire.
