WAUSAU PILOT AND REVIEW

STEVENS POINT, Wis.  — One person has died in a garage fire in Stevens Point, officials have confirmed.

Rescue crews were called at about 7 p.m. Wednesday to a home in the 600 block of Sixth Avenue in Stevens Point, where they discovered the garage engulfed in flames. Officials say they were told a person might be trapped inside.

Fire Chief Bob Finn says they found the victim once the flames were reduced. The fire was contained to the garage with minor damage to two nearby houses.

The blaze is the second fatal fire in a handful of days in Wisconsin. A fire earlier this week in Pickerel claimed the life of six people, including four children.

The name of the victim in the Stevens Point fire has not been released. The cause of the blaze has not yet been determined.
