Fire at Vilas County Lumber Business

04 Jul News

A fire at a Vilas County business caused heavy damage to one of the buildings.

Multiple fire crews were called to Pukall’s Lumber Company for a structure fire at just after 3:00pm. The fire was located in a building behind their main office in Arbor Vitae.

Five fire departments worked to contain the fire to the lone building. They were able to get the fire extinguished, but that building is considered a loss.

The Vilas County Sheriff’s Office provided traffic control along Highway 70 bordering the property.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.
