Photos: Butch’s Bar, Life, Lost To Fire In Sturgeon Bay


Tragedy in Sturgeon Bay.

One person is dead, one is injured and another remains unaccounted for after a fire early Tuesday morning at Butch’s Bar in downtown Sturgeon Bay

The drone photography of Paul Haan underscores the enormous loss this week in Door County as the bar was consumed in flames.

I passed this building at least once a day as I went about my life during the years working at WDOR AM/FM. When working in my other role as a politico in Door County I would go into this bar and pass out campaign lit and shake hands for the Democratic blue-collar vote at election time. The owner at the time was a union man and a Democratic member of the county organization.
