A home in the town of Red River is a total loss after a fire Wednesday afternoon. Fire departments were paged at approximately 3:45 p.m. to a report of smoke in the home on Rendezvous Road just northwest of Luxemburg. By the time firefighters arrived, the home was already engulfed. Luxemburg Fire Chief Lew Du Chateau says they did what they could to protect other nearby structures before trying to attack the fire from the inside.
Fire Departments from Casco, Tisch Mills, Algoma, Brussels-Union-Gardner, New Franken, Kewaunee, and Southern Door all responded to the fire. No injuries were reported and Du Chateau says the fire remains under investigation.
