Fire at Dolhun Field in Lake Tomahawk destroys storage hangar
LAKE TOMAHAWK - A fire in Lake Tomahawk's Dolhun Field Monday night left a storage hangar destroyed. About eight different fire departments worked for hours to put out the flames.

Lake Tomahawk Fire Chief Doug Rehm says the department was called to the fire just before 8 p.m.


The building had been used for storage of RVs and boats. No one was inside at the time of the fire.

"When we arrived the place was fully involved. We had fire coming through the roof, along the whole length of the building," said Rehm.

Rehm says the building is a total loss. He added that while the cold temperatures don't affect the intensity of a fire, they can make the job more difficult.

"It affects our ability to deal with it because of freezing. The water wants to freeze, valves on the tankers and trucks will freeze up and then you can't open them or close them," said Rehm. 

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. The fire Marshal will conduct an investigation.

THREE LAKES - Hundreds of thousands of Germans immigrated to the badger state in the 19th century. On Saturday, people in the Northwoods raised their glasses to Wisconsin's German heritage.

Hundreds of people came to Three Lakes for the town's 4th annual Oktoberfest celebration.

The event featured traditional music, dancing, games and even a sauerkraut eating competition. And of course, there was plenty of good food and beer.

"We have a lot of heritage here," said event organizer Heather Biro. "It gives people the exposure to see there are some ethnic restaurants here in the Northwoods. Everything is made from scratch and they get to have a little taste of it today."
