Local business demolished after fire in Antigo


A local business in Antigo has been demolished, after a fire burned there for several hours.  

Langlade County Emergency Management Officials say the blaze at Peep's Pawn Shop reignited Wednesday. 

Firefighters had responded to a fire there early Tuesday morning. 

A resident called 911 after the fire sparked again. A crowd of people gathered to get a look at what happened.  

"That is probably one of the older structures on the main street of the city of Antigo, it has a long history of business relationships that the community can enjoy so there's probably a lot of interest along those lines," said Langlande Co. Emergency Management Director, Brad Henricks.

The fire is out. Crews say the building was demolished. Fire officials say some area businesses were evacuated.  

They say no one was hurt. A cause has not yet been determined.
