Fire breaks out at Pembine railroad depot

PEMBINE, Wis. (WFRV) — The Pembine railroad depot is believed to be a total loss after a fire broke out late Monday morning.

The building caught fire just before 11 a.m. Firefighters from the Beecher-Dunbar-Pembine Fire Department arrived, and found the building engulfed in flames. Crews closed a portion of Highway 141 as they battled the blaze. The fire was put out, but officials say the building is believed to be a total loss.

Officials tell Local 5 they do not believe anyone was inside at the time of the fire. The cause is still unknown. The Marinette County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.

A witness told Local 5 the depot has been there since 1914.
