A March 6 fire destroyed the 8,800-square-foot Madeline Island Fire Hall. The La Pointe Town Board is reviewing funding options to construct a new building.

La Pointe is reviewing how to fund construction of a new Madeline Island Fire Hall amid uncertainty over both the amount of insurance money it will receive and projected reconstruction costs.

A fire of undetermined origin burned the Emergency Services Building to the ground on March 6. In June the Town Board committed up to $2.3 million to rebuild it, and 21 town residents approved a resolution to spend a total of $2.5 million, which tacked on administrative costs, on Aug. 13.
