A Wisconsin bride-to-be died after being trapped in a house fire on her wedding day, as her family remembered her as 'a precious human' with ambitions to be a vet tech.
Paige Ruddy was asleep on the second story of a Reedsburg home located at the 200 block of W. 2nd Street when it mysteriously became engulfed in flames on Tuesday around 4am.
