Merrill factory badly damaged by fire

by

MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) -- Fire caused extensive damage at a Merrill manufacturing facility Sunday.

Someone spotted smoke coming from the roof of Northern Wire at around 1:30 in the morning. When firefighters arrived, they found a large part of the plant engulfed in flames.

There were no injuries due to the fire.

Preliminary investigations lead fire officials to suspect an electrical problem started the fire, but the investigation is continuing to determine the exact cause.

Merrill Fire Department was assisted by Town of Maine Fire Department, Corning Fire Department, Texas Fire Department, Pine River Fire Department, Wausau Fire Department, and Tomahawk EMS.
