State on Very High Fire Alert
Wildfire risk again elevates statewide with dry, windy conditions and Red Flag warnings for two counties!
A day after a wildfire consumed nearly 9,000 acres and 47 structures in Douglas County, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, in conjunction with the National Weather Service, issued a Red Flag Warning today for Florence and Marinette counties and suspended all DNR burning permits statewide.
This alert means that large forest fires are possible due to the predicted weather conditions. Continued dry and windy weather in much of Wisconsin is pushing wildfire risks into the “very high” range in most of the state.
DNR fire control officials say hazardous conditions are expected to continue until there is a change in current weather patterns. Fire danger ratings are available on line at dnr.wi.gov keyword “fire.”
