STRATFORD, Wis. (WSAW) -- Stratford and Mosinee firefighters responded to the scene of a chimney fire at a home in the Stratford area early Sunday morning, according to the Marathon County Sheriff's Department.

The fire was on Rangeline Road north of Highway C in the Town of Day, according to Marathon County dispatch supervisor Tony Nardi.

Nardi is unaware if anyone was inside the home at the time of the fire, but said no injuries were reported.

Stratford Firefighters at the scene called in for back up and requested a tanker. The Mosinee Fire Department responded but left the scene before 8 a.m. One ambulance was also called in, likely as a precaution. Nardi said crews put out the flames and were able to leave the scene just after 9 a.m.

There's no word on what may have caused the fire.
