An early morning fire destroyed part of the St. Lawrence Seminary located at 301 Church Street in Mt. Calvary, in eastern Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin. The four-alarm fire was reported Saturday, March 8th around 5:30 AM.
Father John Holly told Wisconsin Public Safety that the fire ignited in the oldest building on the campus, which was built in 1870. He said that 190 students attend St. Lawrence Seminary, which is the nation’s oldest Catholic High School Seminary.
About three dozen fire departments from Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Manitowoc, Calumet, and Washington counties assisted the Mt. Calvary Fire Department. No injuries were reported according to officials and all students and staff are safe. Firefighters said the building is considered a total loss.
