A train depot in Pembine is a total loss after a Monday morning fire.

Patrol Sergeant Randy Miller with the Marinette County Sheriff's Office said they were called out to the scene at about 10:43 a.m. central time.
Local fire and rescue teams responded to the scene of the fire. Miller said the train depot was fully engulfed.

Miller said, and it can be seen, that the building is a "total loss."

"It’s just like when you lose a historical building like that, railroad depots, especially has a lot of history to the area. I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed because of that. But, it's a great community, I think they'll get through it. But it's hard to lose a building like that."

He said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
