Fire Season Off to a Hot Start
It has been an active wildfire season so far, according to the area DNR.
Program Forester Mark Mortensen tells KLKS News, sunshine and low humidity's are creating high fire conditions. He says the biggest problems have been seen in low, swampy grassy areas.
Mortensen says the fires have been caused by ATV and equipment use, debris burning and arson.
Only camp fires are allowed now. Mortensen says they must be completely out before abandoning.
