Wausau Warehouse Fire 12-5-17

Wausau Fire Crews Responded for a reported Fire around 6:00am Tuesday Morning at  Central Storage and Warehouse. The building is located on 1200 block of West Street.

Officials said there is concern about a building to the east because the facility stores hay.

Wausau Battalion Chief Paul Czarapata said: We have units going to cover that hay with tarps right now because if we get embers in there, we’ll have another giant building on fire.

The shape of the building is making it difficult to fight the fire. 

Cold temperatures are making it hard to fight since the water will freeze and add slippery spots, officials said.

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

Multiple departments are at the scene, including SAFER, Kronenwetter, Maine, Merrill Wausau.

West Street is closed between 17th Ave. and 10th Ave.

Marathon County Solid Waste Department Director Meleesa Johnson says No cause will be determined speculation is Hot Coals from the grill or Cell Phone Batteries, Johnson says just because your phone battery is not able to power your cell phones but “JUICE” is still enough to get HOT from the sun and start a fire. Johnson has her crews spreading trash away as fire fighters spray the area down with water. Johnson says no equipment was damaged. Lastly Johnson wants to Thank Everyone Who called into report the smoke because with out them it could have been a lot worse not only to the landfill but the neighboring area.
