PORTAGE, WI (WTAQ) - A fire is being investigated at a museum in Portage where Pulitzer Prize-winning author Zona Gale once lived.

Lightning may have struck the brick building early Sunday, but officials were not certain. Damage was confined to the northeast corner of "The Museum at the Portage."

Board member Ted Rebholz tells the Portage Daily Register that Gale's old bedroom was damaged -- and historic photos on the walls were charred.

It was the home of William and Zona Gale Breese, and was donated to the city of Portage in 1942.
