Update on fatal fire in Mukwonago

Town of Mukwonago - Investigators are still trying to uncover the cause of a house fire that occurred early Wednesday morning claiming the life of one woman.

Town of Mukwonago Sergeant Kevin Schmidt said the initial 911 call police received at 12:20 a.m. was for a female having trouble breathing. However the call quickly escalated to a fire call he said.

When police arrived at the home at S63 W31504 Highway X, smoke and flames were visible. Schmidt said one female was standing in the driveway and another was still inside the home. Schmidt said an officer attempted to gain entry to the home to help the woman but could not.

When the fire department arrived, Schmidt said they found the female dead inside the home and the other woman was transported to Waukesha Memorial Hospital for smoke inhalation; her condition is unknown. Authorities are not releasing names. He added that there were three cats in the home, but it is unsure whether the cats escaped.

Schmidt said investigators from the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department are on scene along with the state fire marshall and a fire investigator from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Schmidt said four to five area fire departments responded.
