STRATFORD, Wis (WSAU) A home in Stratford was destroyed by fire Wednesday afternoon.
The Stratford fire department reports that a coffee pot was left plugged in on a back porch. They believe an electrical short caused the porch to catch on fire. The flamed eventually spread to an exterior wall and then reached the home's roof. It's no longer inhabitable.
Two people were home at the time. Both made it out safety. The fire is still under investigation.
