A fire broke out early Wednesday morning at a business on Washington Island. Flames engulfed the Danish Mill Bakery, Deli & Restaurant and the Washington Island Fire Department responded at about 3:45 a.m. Wednesday. Fire Fighters were able to put the fire out, but the building was completely destroyed, according to Fire Chief Paul Swanson. Swanson says no one was in the business at the time of the fire.
Swanson says state officials are being called in to investigate the fire. He says the origin of where the fire started could not be determined at this time. The Danish Mill Bakery opened in 2010 and is owned by Tom and Patty Nikolai, according to their website.
