  A shuttered paper mill with a history dating back to 1882 has been decimated by fire in Menasha.

Firefighters remained on the scene of the fire at the Whiting Mill Monday morning.

Neenah-Menasha Fire Rescue posted on Facebook that the massive fire that started Sunday was under control.

Menasha Mayor Don Merkes posted on Facebook that it was a great loss to the city's history.

The paper mill near the base of the Fox Cities Trestle Trail closed in 2016 after a 134-year history.

The mill was known as the George A. Whiting Paper Co.
