The Washington County Sheriff’s Office got a 911 call just before 8 a.m. reporting the fire on Highway 28 in the town of Kewaskum. The homeowner reported three residents were trapped inside. When emergency crews got to the scene, several area residents had stopped at the house and were assisting the residents out of the home through a window that had to be broken out. Two of the residents were treated on scene, officials said, and the third was taken to a hospital for smoke inhalation. One of the Good Samaritans was treated at the scene for minor cuts, and another was taken to a hospital for a cut to his hand. A Kewaskum officer was also treated for smoke inhalation.
