TOWN OF ERIN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Several agencies responded to a three-alarm house fire in a rural area near Hartford Friday.
Fire officials say the home is a total loss with damages estimated at $225,000
Authorities say a woman who inside the home was able to get out but was taken to the hospital for injuries related to a fall. Three dogs died in the fire.
Fire officials say the cold conditions made it more difficult to fight the fire.
"Weather conditions always have a huge impact on firefighting. Whether it's extreme heat or cold, things freeze, roads ice up, it's a safety hazard. Our men and women down there fighting fire, they're cold. They sweat, you get very cold," said Brian Wirth with the Harford Fire Department.
It's believed the fire started in the basement, although the official cause is still under investigation. It does not appear to be suspicious, according to investigators.
Fire officials say this was one of three fires they were called to in the area Friday.
