Negaunee Township Fire Follow-Up

There’s still no word on what caused the massive fire that scorched a house in Negaunee Township Friday night.

It happened on Kivela Road, which is in a wooded area north of US–41 and the old Marquette County Airport.

The fire was reported at about 8:30 Friday night.

Access to water made the firefighting effort more difficult.

There are no fire hydrants nearby, so pumper trucks had to fill up at hydrants near the Negaunee State Police Post several miles away.

Negaunee City and Ishpeming Township firefighters also helped out at the scene.

No one was home at the time of the fire.

The house was also up for sale.
