Following a second fire this week, an Antigo business is a complete loss.
Emergency crews responded to Peep’s Pawn Shop in Antigo yesterday afternoon after a resident called 911. Firefighters had been there Tuesday morning as well and it is believed to have reignited.
Several nearby businesses did have to be evacuated while the building was burning. Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze before it could spread. Crews were on the scene for multiple hours before getting the fire out.
Officials say the building was demolished, but no injuries were reported. An investigation into what caused the fire is underway.
