MARION, Wis. — A camper and storage shed were destroyed in an explosion Thursday at a Marion campground, according to police.

Crews from Marion and Clintonville were called at 2:45 p.m. May 15 to Farmer Gene’s Campground, N11301 Kinney Lake Rd, Marion, for a report of an explosion, officials said. By the time firefighters arrived on scene, the camper was engulfed in flames and a nearby shed had also caught fire.
