A 70-year-old man died and a 63-year-old woman was injured in a house fire in Hudson, Wisconsin, Wednesday evening. 

According to the Hudson Fire Department, police and fire responded to the home at 416 Locust St. in Hudson at 6:26 p.m. to find the home engulfed in flames. 

One of the two owners of the home, Jane Ellwood, 63, escaped the blaze and was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul for treatment. The other owner, David Ellwood, died in the fire.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it is not believed to be suspicious in nature.
