Fire wipes out rural house
A before-dawn blaze Thursday, June 17, destroyed an unoccupied house in the town of Clifton. River Falls Fire Chief Chris Cernohous said the house was burning for some time and was basically a smoldering debris that had imploded into the basement by the time firefighters arrived.
"I've really never seen anything like it," Cernohous said, who described the house as older, fairly big, somewhat isolated and southwest of County Road QQ. The address is N7425 1170th St.
