SUGAR CAMP - Thousands of bales of hay will smolder through the night at a Sugar Camp barn.
The barn burst into flames early this morning around 8:30 a.m. Several fire departments sent crews to fight the fire, including Sugar Camp, Eagle River, Pine Lakes, Three Lakes, Pelican and St. Germain.
Brent Lorbetske owns the barn that has been in his family since 1910. He says it was just another morning until his daughter called him about the fire.
"I thought someone was dreaming or making up something," says Lorbetske. "I went to the window and sure enough it's this end of the barn. The east end of the barn I could see was in flames."
Fire Chief Jason Goeldner of Sugar Camp Fire Department says no one was injured, and there were no animals inside the barn. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
