ANTIGO - We may never know what caused the fire that destroyed a building near downtown Antigo earlier this spring.

Nothing remains of Peep's Pawn Shop, which stood on 5th Avenue in Antigo.

Crews recently finished tearing the building down and clearing away the rubble.

Fire damaged the building beyond repair March 20th.

It was the second day in a row fire crews were called there.

The first fire was caused by a hot plate, but was put out quickly.

There were also several apartments in the building. No one was injured in either fire.

Antigo Fire Chief Jon Petroskey tells us the damage was so bad, they couldn't determine the cause of the second fire.

The investigation is now closed.

WASHINGTON - The United States Supreme Court Tuesday formally rejected an appeal from Wisconsin which sought to put restrictions doctors working at abortion clinics.

The Justices on Tuesday refused to hear appeals from both Wisconsin and Mississippi.

They involved laws that would have required doctors who perform abortions at clinics to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.

The orders follow Monday's decision in which the court struck down a similar provision in Texas.

Federal appeals courts in Chicago and New Orleans earlier ruled against the states.

Mississippi's law would have closed the lone abortion clinic in the state, in Jackson.

LAONA - This time last year, staff at Camp LeFeber in Laona thought they weren't going to have another season. The Boy Scout Camp was set to close last summer, but with the help of one group and people in the community, it'll stay open this year and perhaps for years to come. 

Camper Erik Norlock has made the trip from Whitefish Bay to Camp LeFeber in Laona since he finished 5th grade. 

"I care a lot about every single scout that we have here," said Norlock. "And being about to do it in such an amazing place is really something that touches home for me."

But the now high school graduate and hundreds more boy scouts who travel to the camp every year almost didn't have a place to go back to.
