We Are Wisconsin HQ destroyed in fire
The We Are Wisconsin headquarters in La Crosse, Wisconsin, was totally destroyed in a fire that started at 9:30 a.m. today and is still burning. There were staff in the building when the fire started, but all were evacuated and are safe. At this time, there is no indication of the cause of the fire.
An article in the La Crosse Tribune has photos showing the extent of the fire that spread to adjoining buildings.
State Representative Jennifer Shilling, who is running against Republican Senator Dan Kapanke in one of the state’s recall elections, is going to need assistance following this fire. The recall election is less than two weeks away and this is going to seriously impact her get-out-the-vote effort.
