Farmers' Market Seeks Non-Profits
Story By Lyndsey Stemm

RHINELANDER - The Rhinelander Farmer's Market want's to help area non-profits.

The market is every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Pioneer Park.

The Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce is helping the market look for non-profits to hold bake sales. Each week one organization can set-up at the market and make a little extra money.

"It's just a great opportunity for an organization. We know so many non-profit organizations are always looking for ways to fundraise, so it's a great opportunity for them to do some of that during a time when there will be people around at the Farmer's Market," says Lara Reed, Executive Director of the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce.

There are picnic tables at the park for you to use, but you need to bring everything else you need to set up shop.

Organizations don't have to pay any fee to be set up at the market, you just have to be a non-profit from the Rhinelander area.

The farmer's market runs until October 19th. You can contact the chamber for more information.

MINOCQUA - Firefighters got called to a fire in Minocqua around 3 p.m. Sunday.
A fire broke out in the garage of a home on West Squaw Lake Road and quickly spread throughout the house.
When firefighters arrived the garage was completely engulfed in flames.

Due to the secluded location of the house firefighters had to set up a water filling station about a mile away at the Birch Trail Resort.
"There's really no good spot to get water we don't have any fire hydrants this way or within about 20 miles of here actually," said Minocqua Fire Department Chief Andy Petrowski. 

Petrowski said the five departments that responded to the scene set up 9 water tanks.
The department ran water from a nearby lake and attacked the fire from the attic.
