PESHTIGO — The Town of Peshtigo Fire Department, along with five other fire departments, responded to a two-story house fire at 12:20 p.m. Sunday on Highway 64 in the Town of Peshtigo.

The call at 1902 Highway 64, near Boneham Addition, lasted more than six hours with the last responder leaving the scene at 6:42 p.m.

Town Fire Chief Mike Folgert said that no injuries were reported as a result of the fire. The homeowners were not home when the fire began and were accounted for when they arrived at the scene after the fire department had arrived, he explained.

Five other fire departments were also called to provide mutual aid. The City of Peshtigo, City of Marinette, Grover/Porterfield, Town of Little River and Village of Pound fire departments were all on scene. Bay Area Medical was on standby, along with Marinette Rescue Squad.  Marinette County Sheriff and the Sheriff’s Auxiliary were on scene to redirect traffic, according to Folgert.

He said there were about 50 firefighters on scene, along with other emergency personnel.

Folgert said the house is “still standing, but ultimately a total loss.”

An investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of the fire, however nothing suspicious is expected, the chief said.
