A pole building is a total loss following a fire last night in Lincoln County.
That fire occurred at just before 8pm last night on High Ridge Road in the Town of Pine River. A neighbor called the fire in, initially believing the home was on fire. A second call indicated that an outdoor wood burner was on fire.
The first on the scene encountered the large pole shed and attached wood burner engulfed upon arrival.
Crews were able to extinguish the fire, but the building is considered a total loss. No injuries were reported. The person living at the property said they became aware of the fire when the lights in the home flickered.
Evidence indicates that the fire began in that wood burner.
