Building at Spencer Sawmill Destroyed by Fire

Marathon County sheriff's deputies say they believe a building at Wolf's Sawmill on Karau Ave. in Spencer is a total loss after a fire Friday night.

The fire was reported at about 9:50pm.

Multiple departments were called to the scene, but all but Spencer were called off as the fire was brought under control in less than 45 minutes.

Deputies say a pole shed with some machinery inside will probably be a total loss. They suspect it was electrical in nature and it's not considered suspicious.

Nobody was hurt.
