Fire Destroys Marinette Business
An early morning fire destroyed a Marinette business Wednesday. Town of Peshtigo Fire Chief Mike Folgert says the call for the fire at Dun-Rite Asphalt Maintenance on County Road B came in just after 3:00 AM. When crews arrived on scene minutes later, flames could already be seen coming through the roof and the structure was fully involved. Six local fire departments assisted in the firefighting effort, which lasted until about 10:30 AM. Due to the location of the fire, crews had to transport water to the scene from nearby hydrants. While the building is likely a total loss, Folgert says they were able to save some business records from the office area and move company vehicles and other equipment away from the building. No injuries were reported from the incident and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
