DARLINGTON, Wis. (AP) - Authorities in southwestern Wisconsin say teenagers playing with fireworks may have caused a house fire.

Darlington Police Chief Jason King tells WKOW-TV (https://bit.ly/1Mm5ief ) the people in the house were able to escape safely, but the house was destroyed.

The fire originally was reported as a garage fire about 3:30 a.m. Sunday. The fire quickly spread to the home and a Masonic Temple next door. The Masonic Temple sustained moderate damage.

The investigation into the fire continues.


This story has been corrected to show that Jason King is Darlington police chief instead of fire chief.
