Medford business destroyed by fire Saturday

by

MEDFORD, WI (WSAU) -  Fire destroyed a Medford business Saturday morning. A police patrolman noticed smoke coming from the Main Street Convenience Store at about 6:30 a.m. Medford and Stetsonville fire departments battled the blaze. Crews used a backhoe to pull down parts of the building into the street to prevent the fire from spreading to adjacent buildings.

The fire kept crews busy most of the day Saturday. Several Medford businesses provided food and beverages to firefighters, and opened their doors to give emergency personnel a place to warm up.

The Main Street Convenience Store is a total loss. Neighboring businesses Feet In Motion and Silence is Nothing have smoke and water damage.
