Crews were on the scene within two minutes of the call... and but arrived to see flames already showing... from a second-story unit.

One person was reportedly trapped inside... but crews were able to get them out.

We have more on this story up on channel 3000 dot com.

One more body is believed to be located in the rubble of the plant.

Investigators have narrowed down the cause of a deadly plane fire in russia to three possibilities -- inexperienced pilots ... equipment failure ... or bad weather.

The most prominent -- is a measure that would require doctors to care for children born alive during abortion attempts.

The bills have almost no chance of getting past democratic governor tony evers -- but could re- energize the republican base... heading to next year's elecitons.

Last month in green bay - the president voiced his support for the so-called "born-alive" bill lawmakers are hoping new legislation could help fire departments across the state recruit and retain firefighters.

Senator patrick testin is working on a proposal to give tax incentives to folks who volunteer in those positions.

Tax credits would help reimburse volunteers for equipment, training and travel expenses... new members would get tax credits when they join the departments... and those would increase after five years... to help fuel rentention.

It's been nearly 10 years since a wisconsin governor has issued a pardon ... but that could change under governor evers.
