Corrigan-Camden High School Shop Building Possibly Totaled by Large Fire, CORRIGAN, June 7, 2016 - Shortly before 2 pm on June 6, 2016, a fire broke out at the Corrigan-Camden High School Welding Shop Building. Volunteer fire departments from Corrigan, Livingston, Scenic Loop and Onalaska responded to scene to extinguish the fire that took nearly three hours to get under control. Additionally, Corrigan Police Department was dispatched to the scene. Preliminarily, the fire is believed to have been electrical in nature. Evidence at the scene suggests that conditions in the shop building were poorly maintained where things were stacked and piled in places that looked like it had been there for some time. The north end of the building proved to be one of the more difficult areas to get the fire extinguished as heavy equipment was used to tear the side of the building off in order to get to flames that were burning above shop building classrooms. The extensive damage caused by the fire may have totaled the building. Fortunately, nobody was hurt in the incident. The Sate Fire Marshal's Office has been summoned to investigate the fire.

Heavy equipment was brought in to tear the siding off of the north side of the building so that firmen could get to the fire above classrooms.
Firmen stop to get relief from the heat.
