The Langlade County Coroner believes an arson-suicide might be what killed a person in Monday's barn fire near Antigo.

Larry Shadick says the victim should be identified by Thursday morning. 

Shadick thinks the person who died was a relative of the property owners.


Authorities are investigating after a deadly house fire near Antigo. 

The Langlade County Sheriff's Office got a 911 call last night about a barn on fire. 

When firefighters and deputies arrived on the scene they found both the barn and a house engulfed in flames. 

After the fire was put out, a body was discovered inside the home. 

An autopsy is planned, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
