Engaged Couple's Wedding Rings Found in Destroyed Home on 34th and Saint Paul


New details have been discovered about a fire that destroyed a home on Milwaukee's west side this morning.  

The couple living in that house has been counting the days until their wedding.

The home near 34th and Saint Paul is destroyed and the fire department is calling the fire suspicious.

But for one couple that lived there one small bit of good news came out of the rubble.

Janee Robinson and Dennis Taylor lived on the second floor, and are engaged to be married on June 10.

They say their downstairs neighbor was being threatening last night. The couple said he jiggled  the door and tapped on the window, and "acted like he was possessed." Fearing for their safety the couple left their house about 3:00 AM.

“I couldn't leave her at home by herself like that,” said Taylor.

When they came back in the morning, they found their home destroyed, and their wedding rings were inside.

The couple told the Red Cross who told firefighters who went inside and came back out with the rings.

Janee and Dennis lost almost everything today, but are thankful that they still have each other.

“Normally in the mornings my fiancee would be home asleep, something this morning was just meant for us to get up out of the house,” said Taylor.

The couple says threatening neighbor was taken into police custody.
