A La Crosse home is severely damaged after a fire. The La Crosse fire department says it was called to the home in the 12- hundred block of State Street just before eight last night.
Crews say the backside of the home was fully engulfed when they arrived. A battalion chief tells us the older, three-story home was divided into student housing.
A dog died in the fire and a firefighter was treated at the scene for minor injuries. Firefighters say the cause of the fire was an unattended gas grill on the back porch.
