- A fire in Merrill burned a hunting cabin to the ground. It happened on Black Alder Road Friday morning. The Merill fire department could see the smoke above the trees when they were en route. When firefighters got there the walls had already fallen in. There was no electricity in the cabin, but there was reportedly lightning in the area. Crews were there for about three hours-- the fire department is still investigating.
