No one was injured in a Tuesday night fire in Plover that left two storage units damaged.

The Metro Fire Unit was called to Zblewski Storage, 1140 Rogers Dr. in the village of Plover, at 6:40 p.m. on May 30. The unit consists of firefighters from Plover, Stevens Point, and Hull.

A Metro Fire response is standard anytime smoke or flames are reported in a structure.

Plover Fire Chief Mark Deaver said the southernmost of eight storage unit buildings on the property began to burn after an older Volkswagen bus caught fire while it was parked behind the building.

The fire was contained to one storage unit, while a neighboring unit did sustain some water damage, Deaver said.

The VW bus was likely a total loss.

The cause remains under investigation, Deaver said.

Plover police also responded to close down the road to traffic. The scene was cleared at 7:27.
