Squad car, suspect vehicle go up in flames

TOMAH - A Monroe County sheriff's pursuit of a suspected drunken driver ended when a deputy's squad and the suspect's minivan became engulfed in fire.

Sheriff's dispatchers got a call about an erratic driver Sunday about 4 p.m. A deputy who found the van and talked to the driver said the man was apparently intoxicated.

Authorities say the driver fled onto Interstate 94 and into the city of Tomah. The man drove to his property in rural Tomah and into a wooded marsh area.
