Lake Wissota house saved from fire by luck

LAKE WISSOTA, Wis. (WEAU) A series of fortunate events may have helped save a house near Lake Wissota Friday.

The Chippewa Fire District says multiple agencies responded to the fire just before 6:00pm on 188th Street in Chippewa Falls.

The fire was contained to an unfinished room in the basement.

Crews say a water pipe in the room burst right after the fire started, which likely saved the house from going up in flames.

The house only had smoke damage.

No one was inside the house at the time of the fire.
