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.
