No one injured in Onalaska house fire

House was under construction

No one was injured in an early Tuesday morning house fire on the 300 block of Troy Street in Onalaska.

When Onalaska firefighters arrived on scene at about 5 a.m., flames were coming out of the roof.

Onalaska Fire Chief Don Dominick told News 8 the drywall wasn’t up so the fire spread quickly. The fire was so hot it melted the siding on the garage that was in the back. Siding on a house to the west was also damaged.

Chief Dominick said crews put out the fire within about 40 minutes.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
