WI DNR - Warden Wire: Statewide suspension of burning permits lifted; DNR FLIR plane used to find hot spots

Two quick updates from the Douglas County wildfire, also known as the Germann Road Fire:

The DNR has lifted its statewide suspension of all burning permits. However, there are some counties with restrictions. Please check your county's status at this link below. You also are encouraged to check with your local officials for any additional restsrictions.

The DNR's FLIR plane (this is the aircraft equipped with the infrared camera) flew over the wildfire area last night detecting hot spots. Fire crews today are working to suppress those spots.

Stay safe!
