HAWLEY - Fire broke out twice and gutted a section of a hangar building at the municipal airport here Saturday.

No one was injured in the blaze, which was reported by motorists driving by on U.S. Highway 10 at 7:39 a.m.


Hawley Fire Chief Gary Schultz said a state fire marshal was on scene Saturday afternoon and has a "pretty good idea" of what caused the fire, but it was not released.

The marshal plans to return Monday for further investigation, Schultz said.
