Fire Death Investigation

The Dane County coroner's office is expected to begin a forensics exam Monday on a 23-year-old Plymouth man who died in a house fire near the UW-Madison campus Sunday.

Peter Talen was a UW-La Crosse student who was in town to visit his brother.

Talen was declared dead at the scene after firefighters found his body in the blazing home.

Three people, including Talen's brother, escaped from the house. They were taken to UW Hospital with burns, but there was no word on how severe their injuries were.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
