VIDEO: The Milwaukee Fire Department took extra precautions today as they were called to a house fire near Greenfield and 33rd in Milwaukee. Extra resources were called to help fight the fire because of the frigid temperatures. The fire started in the attic of the home around 8:30 Tuesday morning. Six people live in the house, including three children, and they will not be able to return anytime soon. Firefighters did find a woman on the first floor and helped her to safety but no one was hurt. They are now being helped by Red Cross. Firefighters say there is now significant damage to the second floor and attic and the roof was torn open for ventilation.
