NEW FRANKEN, WI (WTAQ) - Fire crews dealt with a major blaze at a New Franken home Thursday that was being remodled.

They were called to the home on Edgewater Beach Road Thursday morning. Construction crews working on the house were on scene when the fire started.

Authorities say the house suffered extensive damage. Firefighters struggled with the freezing temperatures and road conditions during the fire.

"We had a little difficulties today with the narrow road, slippery roads and keeping our water running -- but everybody was safe," Carl VanDenavond of the New Franken Fire Department told FOX 11.

Officials say it’s still unclear exactly how the fire started. There is no damage estimate at this time.
