STARTING OFF A NEW WEEK!

FIREFIGHTERS ON THE SCENE THIS MORNING IN ISHPEMING.

It was a busy one today for firefighters in the Ishpeming area.  It all started around 3:30 am when firefighters were called out to scene of a major structure fire in downtown Ishpeming.  The fire was reported at a building at the corner of Division and Lake Streets and firefighters arriving on the scene found the structure fully engulfed in flames.  There have been no reported injuries because the building was unoccupied at the time of the fire.  Eyewitness accounts said the flames were shooting ten or more feet into the air before firefighters got the fire under control by about 8-am.  This photo, taken by our own intrepid Major Discount around 8:45am, shows the fire caused substantial damage to the building.  The cause of the fire remains under investigation.  (Special thanks to Scanner Don, our own West End newshound for calling in updates as they happened!)

VEGAN DINING AND MORE!

NATASHA GILL FROM NORTHERN VEGANS.

Natasha Gill with Northern Vegans joined us this morning to tell us about a presentation scheduled for this evening at the Peter White Public Library in Marquette.  She also discussed some of the upcoming programs and events in the works with Northern Vegans for folks to take part in and learn more about eating a vegan diet.  She also talked about why she has chosen the vegan way and how she feels it helped her.  To listen to Natasha’s comments from this morning’s interview, you can click “HERE“.  To find out more about the Northern Vegans and how you can get involved, please click “HERE“.  Be sure to check out some of the delicious recipes on their site as well.
