Fire destroys pole shed, wood furnace

by

MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) -- Fire caused heavy damage to a pole shed and attached outdoor wood burning furnace near Merrill Monday evening.

The fire was at a home in the town of Pine River on High Ridge Road. A neighbor spotted the fire and called 9-1-1. Shortly after that, a resident noticed the fire when the house lights started flickering.

The fire started at about 7:45 p.m. The pole shed was totally destroyed by the blaze.

Pine River firefighters were assisted at the scene by the Hewitt, Texas, and Merrill fire departments, along with a Wisconsin Public Service utility crew.
