SUPERIOR, WI (KDAL) - Superior fire crews allowed a fire to burn in an abandoned brick structure on an ore dock Friday evening after determining it was not at risk to jump to a nearby surface or building. All Superior fire companies were dispatched to the fire at 3701 37th Ave. E and found burning the abandoned 100-ft. tall brick structure built on steel framework. After determining nobody was in the building, the SFD consulted the BNSF Railroad, which owns the property, and decided to let the structure burn. The SFD said that since no lives or valuable property were in danger, crews made the rare decision to do nothing.
