Fire strikes empty business

MARQUETTE — The Marquette Fire Department responded to a small fire today in an apartment above the former location of Forsberg Flowers.

The call came in just after 4 p.m. today at the corner of Third Street and Ohio Street. A construction worker noticed some smoke coming from an apartment above the building and called 911. Firefighters then removed the drywall ceiling and found insulation that caught fire due an electrical wire shortage.

Officials say the damage was minor.
