OCONTO - No one was injured after a overnight fire in Oconto.
Officials say fire and rescue crews responded to the structure fire around 12:30 Sunday morning at 808 Main Street.
When firefighters arrived on scene, there was a large amount of black smoke coming from all sides of the building.
The structure was a two-story, vacant building that was previously occupied by Danz Video. The business has been closed for at least two years.
Due to the size of the building, 9,700 square feet, plus surrounding homes and businesses, mutual aid was called in to help.
Firefighters were able to limit the fire to the structure at 808 Main Street. There was minor damage to a business located eight feet away.
It took crews two hours to get the fire under control. Officials then determined that the building had to be immediately torn down due to the unsafe conditions.
Four engines, one aerial ladder truck, one ambulance, and 35 personnel from Oconto, Oconto Falls, and Pensaukee responded to this fire.
Fire units were on scene for about 13 hours in hot and humid temperatures.
Officials say damage was extensive to the structure and its contents. The structure is valued $71,977 and is a complete loss.
It took more than 525,000 gallons of water to extinguish the fire.
The cause of the fire is under investigation at this time.
