Cause of Antigo fire still under investigation


ANTIGO, WI (WTAQ) - Investigators are still trying to determine what caused a fire that destroyed a downtown building in Antigo.

Flames re-ignited Wednesday in a building that housed Peep’s Pawn Shop and apartments with four residents.

The fire started early Tuesday. Antigo Fire Chief Jon Petroskey said the second floor apartments were gutted, while the pawn shop on the first floor had heavy smoke and water damage.

No one was hurt.

Langlade County emergency management director Brad Henricks said it was one of the oldest structures in downtown Antigo. It housed the local Boys and Girls club just before the pawn shop moved there.
