VIDEO: A man who thought his house was on fire drove to a fire station and pulled an alarm to get firefighters' attention. Wisconsin Rapids firefighters at Station 1, 1511 12th St. S, didn't know what was happening when the station's fire alarm went off at 2:54 a.m. Monday, Fire Capt. Bob Barteck said. Firefighters got up, searched the station and found a man in the entryway. The 91-year-old man said his home was on fire in the 600 block of 17th Street but did not say whether it was 17th Street north or south or provide any other details, Barteck said. Police helped firefighters determine the home was on the south side of the city.
