According to Chippewa Falls Fire Department, crews responded to a house fire with heavy smoke and flames at 1123 Huron Street shortly before 4 a.m.

Upon arrival, crews found flames coming from the first and second story windows on the back of the house. After battling the fire from inside for five minutes, it was determined the structure was not safe, so crews were removed.
