- 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.
