The Lincoln County Sheriff's Department says a wood stove appears to be the cause of an ice shanty fire over the weekend.

Dispatch received a call of a fire around 8 a.m. Saturday on Lake Alice, northwest of Tomahawk, in the Town of King.

When Tomahawk Firefighters and a Deputy arrived on the scene they found a camper trailer, which had been converted into an ice shanty, engulfed in flames.

Tomahawk Firefighters put out the fire, but the camper was a total loss.

The owner told the investigating Deputy that he had started a fire in a small wood stove in the camper and then had left to take a walk around the lake, when he returned he found the camper fully engulfed in flames.
