Fire Destroys Crivitz Duplex
11/20/2018- Several people have been displaced following a weekend fire in Crivitz. The Crivitz Fire Department was already assisting with a structure fire in the Town of Stephenson Saturday afternoon when the call came in around 4:15 for another fire at a duplex just off Henriette Avenue in Crivitz. More than half a dozen fire departments battled both the blaze and temperatures that dipped into the teens well into the early morning hours. Crivitz Fire Chief Luke Deschane says while the cause of the fire is not yet known, it is believed to have started in the bathroom in the lower unit and the entire structure is considered a total loss. Both the upper and lower units were occupied and all residents were safely evacuated. Deschane says one resident and one firefighter were treated for smoke inhalation, but not other serious injuries were reported.
