Student Drunk, Tries to Climb Into Burning House
Who else besides firefighters run into a burning house? Now, an answer to that age old rhetorical question, care of a La Crosse college student. Police say they pulled a 19 year-old off of a garage sitting about five feet away from a house that was engulfed in flames early Sunday morning on North 14th street. Apparently the young guy was trying to climb in to the burning house. His explanation: he was attempting to help firefighters look for anybody inside. Claimed he had lost a friend in a fire years ago. He was, by the way, quite drunk. That Sunday morning fire on 14th street is still under investigation.
