House Fire Near Wisconsin Campus Kills 3 Students; Neighbors Heard Smoke Alarms

MENOMONIE, Wis. (Associated Press) -- A smoky house fire near a University of Wisconsin campus killed three students who never made it out of the rooms where they were sleeping early Saturday, even though neighbors said they heard alarms.

Rescuers found two women and a man in three second-floor bedrooms near the University of Wisconsin-Stout. All three were pronounced dead at a hospital, authorities said.
