Fire at Stevens Point Country Club Leads to Evacuation

A fire Thursday evening inflicted minor damage to the Stevens Point Country Club.

The Town of Hull fire chief tells NewsChannel 7 that a four foot by four foot area of wooden shingles on the building at 1628 Country Club Drive burned.

The building was evacuated for a short time and the fire quickly put out.

The cause is under investigation but is not considered suspicious.

Three fire departments and the Portage County Sheriff's Department responded to the scene just before 7pm.
