Fire destroys downtown Oshkosh landmark

A long-time land mark in Oshkosh is now nothing more than a pile of rubble. Mabel Murphy’s collapsed during a fire early yesterday morning. Residents in the area say they just always expected Mabel’s to be on Main Street. Firefighters were able to save the bar’s sign. The fire started in the apartments next door. The owner of Mabel Murphy’s was planning a 45th anniversary celebration this weekend. According to some, the building dates back to the 1890s.
