WEST SALEM — A fire early Sunday morning destroyed a house at 120 Ken's Lane in West Salem.

The fire was reported at 12:45 a.m., with the one-story ranch home engulfed when firefighters arrived, said West Salem Police Chief Charles Ashbeck. The home, rented by John and Kelly Sandvig, was unoccupied at the time. There were no injuries to firefighters.

Ashbeck and West Salem Fire Chief Dave Munson couldn't determine the origin of the fire and called in the Wisconsin Department of Criminal Investigation to assist. A state fire marshall is investigating the cause of the fire, which could take four to six weeks to determine, Ashbeck said.
