LA CROSSE, Wis. -

At least one family was displaced after a fire Tuesday morning at an apartment complex on the 1300 block of 4th Street South in La Crosse.

La Crosse Fire Department Division Chief Jeff Murphy says crews were able to contain the fire to one room in the lower level of the eight-unit building.

No one was injured and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The American Red Cross is helping the family displaced by the fire. The La Crosse Municipal Transit Authority bus was on scene to keep the people evacuated warm.

Division Chief Murphy says the bitter cold made it difficult to fight the fire, but they were able to put it out within ten minutes.

A damage estimate is not available yet.
