Shawano County, Wis (WBAY) – A fire destroyed a small engine shop in Navarino Monday morning, forcing authorities to close Highway 47 in both directions for a while.

Fire crews were called around 7:00 a.m. They called for mutual aid for manpower and water because the fire was in a rural area.

Firefighters from 10 agencies were on the scene until noon.

Investigators haven’t determined yet where the fire started in the building or what caused it, but tell us there’s no reason to believe it was suspicious.

Highway 47 was closed between Shady and Union Cemetery roads east of Navarino, just south of Highway 156, for the fire response.
