KAUKAUNA, WI (WTAQ) - A fire early Saturday leaves eight people without a home in Kaukauna.
Fire crews were called to the house fire at 716 E. 9th Street around 5:30 a.m. for a report of a fire on the front porch.
Upon arrival, firefighters saw the front side of the house on fire with smoke coming from the eves.
Five residents were living in the lower units and three lived upstairs. Three other people were staying upstairs in the converted house.
Everyone but one person was able to escape, and crews used a ladder truck to put out the flames and search for that person.
Firefighters eventually found him, and he was taken by ambulance to St. Elizabeth Hospital.
The house is a total loss, and the cause of the fire is under investigation. The Red Cross is helping out those displaced.
