Whitehall house destroyed by fire
A house located at 36134 Roosevelt St. in Whitehall has severe damage from a fire last week.
The Whitehall-Lincoln Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to the scene at 1:11 a.m. last week Wednesday morning after the fire was reported. Upon arrival, fire fighters noticed heavy smoke and flames coming from the north, east and south sides of the residence, a report from the department said.
Firefighters first attempted to attack the fire from the exterior to protect neighboring properties. Once the initial fire was extinguished from the exterior, a second crew entered the home to for an interior attack.
A property search on the Trempealeau County Government Center website shows that the property belongs to Mark Walski, who was not home at the time of the fire.
The cause of the fire is unknown and is under investigation.
Mutual aid was provided by the Blair-Preston Fire Department.
