ASHWAUBENON – An Ashwaubenon home is a total loss after a fire early Saturday morning.

It happened around 1:30 am.

Ashwaubenon Public Safety officials say the fire at 1421 Mohican Court started in a garage and then spread to the home.  Multiple crews were called.

Two adult children were home at the time, but were able to get out safely.

By the time crews arrived on scene the house was fully engulfed, and had started to spread to nearby homes.

Crews say they were able to put out the fire quickly, and no nearby homes suffered major damage.  There’s still no word on the cause.

The American Red Cross Lakeland Chaptet is assisting the family.
