      EDGAR, Wis. (AP) - Marathon County sheriff's officials say fire has caused more than $1 million in damage to county vehicles.

      A motorist reported smoke coming out of one of the county highway department's storage garages near Edgar early Friday.

      WSAW-TV reports the fire damaged six trucks, a front end loader and a skid steer.

      Damage is initially estimated at about $1.5 million, but the sheriff's office says that estimate is likely to change.

      Authorities are still trying to determine what caused the fire.
