WAUSAU - A lieutenant with the Wausau Police Department believes a dumpster fire may have been the cause of a grocery store fire in downtown Wausau Tuesday night.

No one was hurt, but the lieutenant said there was damage to that nearby grocery store.


The Wausau Police Department says the fire started  at roughly 5:30 p.m. behind Downtown Grocery on Third Street.

It appears the fire damaged the grocery, while some smoke also damaged another building nearby.

The lieutenant says the damage could have been much worse, but firefighters were able to keep the fire from getting out of control.

The fire is still under investigation.

MINOCQUA -
Starting a new health routine can be intimidating, but easing into the process can do the trick.

Just as balance is key in yoga, it is important to have in your lifestyle, too.

That's a mindset that Laurel Parins lives by.

"Whether that is a twenty minute walk, a class here at the studio… that will make you happier when you're not restricting yourself," says Parins.

She opened Roots Health Studio in Minocqua at the end of May after working in the fitness and nutrition field in Green Bay for some years.

"I really wanted to bring my knowledge of healthy lifestyle-living back to the community I grew up in."

Laurel gets that a new "health journey" can be intimidating, but she says you can't go wrong.

"Once you try it, you'll never regret it."

Laurel offers yoga and barre classes, personal training, and nutrition services at Roots.
