WHITEHALL, Wis. (WEAU) --- A massive fire has destroyed a feed mill in Whitehall.

It happened at the Larson Agri Service Mill on Scranton Street.

Whitehall Fire Department Chief Jeremiah Pientok says the call came in at about 10 p.m. Wednesday night.

Several fire departments and a total of about 80 firefighters were called in to help fight the flames, which they were able to put the fire out in about an hour and 45 minutes.

No one was hurt in the fire, but Chief Pientok says the building is a total loss.

Firefighters spent most of the night tearing through the building, making sure the fire was completely out.

The cause is still under investigation.
