TOWN OF SIGEL, Wis. (AP) — Authorities in central Wisconsin say they don’t suspect foul play following a house fire in the Town of Sigel (SEE’-gul) this week that killed three family members.
The Wood County sheriff’s department says Wednesday’s fire apparently started around the garage. They say the blaze appears to have been accidental.
The victims were identified Thursday as 79-year-old William J. Heiser Sr.; 71-year-old Janet M. Heiser; and their son, 38-year-old William J. Heiser Jr.
The fire was reported Wednesday about 2:30 a.m. Fire officials who responded found the house engulfed in flames.
