Fire destroys shed at Mehls property

The New Richmond Fire Department responded to a shed fire Saturday morning on County Road T.

Baldwin United Fire and Deer Park Fire Department provided mutual aid by sending tanker trucks.

The shed was owned by Peter Mehls. According to New Richmond Fire Chief Jim Vander Wyst, the structure burned to the ground. The smoke from the blaze could be seen for miles around.

"We don't know how it started," Vander Wyst said. The structure did have a wood burner and some electrical fans inside, but the exact cause was difficult to determine.

Vander Wyst said fire crews were on the scene for two hours.
