VIDEO: Firefighting units from multiple jurisdictions responded to a fire Wednesday night at the construction site of the new Meijer superstore being built here. The fire broke out about 8:30 p.m. in an area where contractors were doing masonry work, said Matt Kasriel, assistant fire chief for the Grand Chute Fire Department. A propane tank in the vicinity then exploded. Kasriel said all of the workers escaped the building without injury. Appleton and Fox Crossing fire units also responded.
