Crews from at least five fire departments were called Wednesday to a garage fire at south of Wausau.

Everest Metro Police Chief Clay Schulz now says the blaze caused significant damage and is under investigation by his department and Riverside Fire.

The initial call came through at about 1:30 p.m. in the 1500 block of Metro Drive, just off Bus. Hwy. 51 in Schofield at a large parking garage.

Wausau, SAFER, Mosinee, Riverside and Ringle departments are among those who responded, along with the Salvation Army.

If you have any information regarding this fire, video of the early stages of the fire, or suffered any property loss, please contact the Everest Metro Police Department. The best way to report this information is through a packet that has been developed and is available at the Metro Apartments Management Office or the Everest Metro Police Department, Schulz said.

“We understand it may take a significant amount of time to inventory items lost due to the fire, but this information is important for us to gather,” he said

This is a developing story.
