Fire crews in Baraboo said a home is a total loss after an early-morning fire, according to a release from the Baraboo Fire Department.

Crews were called just before 3 a.m. Tuesday to a home on Highway W. Officials said the fire was so far along when they arrived that putting it out was a defensive battle from the start.

The homeowner was not at home at the time of the fire.

It took 17 crew members about an hour to get the fire under control. Officials said the fre is not considered suspicious.
