Local News

KAUKAUNA, Wis. (WFRV) – Three individuals were arrested on Tuesday in connection with the Kaukauna house fire that occurred early Monday morning.

Police said that two 21-year-old men, one from Little Chute and one from Appleton along with a 20-year-old man from Hollandtown have all been arrested.

Police have determined that the three suspects had entered the abandoned residence located on the 300 block of Dixon Street at around 3:25 a.m. without consent and began destroying and lighting on fire items that were left inside the house.

Kaukauna police noted that at one point the three men also allegedly lit a mattress on fire.

Police believe two of the men are believed to have left the residence while the third man fell asleep in the house.

A short while later authorities said the suspect that had fallen asleep within the house woke up to smoke and flames. The suspect exited the home on his own and was not reported to have received any injuries.

According to authorities, all three men have been booked into the Outagamie County Jail Tuesday on charges of Arson, Burglary, and Criminal Damage to Property.
