OCONTO – An early-morning fire destroys two unoccupied buildings, but no one was hurt.
This fire broke out around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday, in the 800 block of Main Street. Witnesses say they saw flames and called 911.
Crews report it was too dangerous to enter the buildings, so they fought the fire from the outside. Both buildings were vacant. Three fire departments and more than 20 firefighters responded.
The restaurant next door, Crivello's, was spared, but it took on 2 to 3 inches of water and will be closed for at least several days
The two buildings had to be knocked down because of their danger to surrounding homes and businesses. They were demolished around 11:30 a.m. Sunday.
