Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) - Firefighters in Superior were called to a fire at an abandoned ore dock Friday evening.

Fire Department officials say they were called to the dock off 37th Avenue around 5:30 p.m.

They say that the fire was burning in an ore dock which had been abandoned for years.

After a crew searched the interior of the structure and determined no one was inside, officials made the decision to let the fire die out on its own.

Fire officials say that with no lives or property in danger, the decision made the most sense.

Officials say while the fire looked suspicious, the cause of as of now is undetermined.
