Chicog Road fire believed to be arson

July 03, 2020 by Brian Jopek

A structure fire on Chicog Road in Lac du Flambeau late Sunday afternoon is being investigated as an arson. 

Firefighters from the Lac du Flambeau and Woodruff fire departments were called to the report of a structure fire after 4 p.m. 

Lac du Flambeau police chief Bob Brandenburg on Monday told The Lakeland Times no one was living in the residence, which was a total loss. 

“It had burned before, a year or two ago,” he said. “Somebody just restarted it. Last time, it was accidental. We think this time, it’s arson.”
