Wausau (WI) firefighters responded for a fire around 6:00am Tuesday (12/5/17) to Central Storage and Warehouse located on the 1200 block of West Street.

The shape of the building made it difficult to fight the fire as did cold temperatures causing the water to freeze and create slippery spots.

Officials said there was concern for a building to the east because the facility stores hay.

Wausau Battalion Chief Paul Czarapata said units were going to cover that hay with tarps so that embers don’t create another giant building on fire.

No one was inside when the fire happened and no one on scene was hurt. 

Multiple departments responded to the scene, including SAFER, Kronenwetter, Maine, and Merrill Wausau.

Crews were fighting a fire at the Marathon County Landfill in the town of Ringle (WI)  Sunday early evening. They were actively fighting a fire in the landfill itself.

Wittenburg, City of Wausau tender (tanker), Birnamwood, Maine, Edgar, Kronenwettter, Ringle, Easton, SAFER, and Hatley fire departments responded to the call. The Salvation Army was also on scene assisting with water for the emergency personnel.

Ringle Fire Chief Chris Kielman told reporters the fire department has responded multiple times to the landfill, though not recently. Chief Kielman said when units arrived on scene the fire was approx. 100 x 100. No injuries were reported. 

Marathon County Solid Waste Department Director Meleesa Johnson said no cause will be determined, but speculation was hot coals from a grill or cellphone batteries. Johnson said that just because a battery is not able to power a cell phone, “juice” is still enough to get hot from the sun and start a fire. Johnson had her crews spreading trash away as fire fighters sprayed the area down with water. No equipment was damaged and Johnson thanked everyone who called in to report the smoke because with out them it could have been a lot worse, not only to the landfill but the neighboring area.
