MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) -- Fire destroyed a cabin north of Merrill Tuesday. Merrill firefighters were called to an address on Olivotti Lake Road near Pier Street just before 11:00 a.m. when a Lincoln County deputy sheriff spotted smoke and drove towards it to investigate.

The officer found the structure fully engulfed in flames when he arrived. Merrill, Tomahawk, Pine River, and Russell firefighters put out the fire and saved a nearby garage, but the cabin is a total loss.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. The structure had been unoccupied for about four hours when the fire broke out.
