Fire in Marathon Co. kills 75-80 cattle


A fire in the Marathon County destroyed a barn and two sheds early Sunday morning. Officials say it happened in the town of Cassel around 2:30 a.m. Cassel is between Edgar and Marathon City.

Marathon County Sheriff's Department officials say 75-80 cattle died in the blaze, and 20-25 others got out of the barn. But they say those may be put down, due to smoke inhalation.
