Firefighters battle flames at Town of Merrill home
TOWN OF MERRILL (WAOW)-- Merrill fire fighters responded to a home on County Road C Sunday evening after receiving reports of a structure fire. Officials say once on scene, they found a fire on the back side of the residence.
Crews say they were able to use hose lines and an interior attack to limit damage. No one was home at the time of the fire.
Fire fighters believe the fire was caused by an outdoor wood burner that was next to the building, but say the incident could undergo further investigation. No foul play is suspected.
The Merrill Fire Department would like to remind home owners with wood burners to use caution when using wood burners, even during this mild winter.
