Two people were killed in a house fire near 25th and Melvina.
The fire broke out around 4 a.m. Monday near the intersection of 25th Street and Melvina.
MILWAUKEE -- An overnight house fire on the north side killed two people.
TODAY'S TMJ4 spoke to the neighbor Tanya Nimock who says she woke up at about 3:00 a.m. Monday to the smell of smoke.
When she looked out her window near 25th and Melvina she saw flames in the back of her neighbors home and called 911.
The on-duty fire lieutenant tells us rescuers pulled two adults out of the home and began to perform CPR. The couple was pronounced dead at the scene.
"There was a lot of smoke in the back, and then the fire blazed up and I ran and got my phone," said Nimock. They brought them out. I was hoping that they would be okay that's what I was hoping for."
