Stevens Point Fire Dept. called to Sentry Insurance


Cleaning staff at Sentry Insurance were evacuated from the building Thursday night after reports of flames and smoke coming from the fourth floor of the building in Stevens Point.

At around 9 p.m. the Stevens Point Fire Department was called to Sentry Insurance, located on 1800 Northpoint Drive. Firefighters say when they arrived, they found smoke in the mechanical room. Eventually, firefighters say, they found flames coming from a transformer that keeps the elevators working. 

About 15 minutes later, the flames were put out. Officials say no one was hurt. 

The cause of the fire is not yet determined.
