WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: Risk of wildfires decreasing thanks to today's rain
The risk of wildfires has gone down, and rain is in the forecast statewide for today. Even so, the D-N-R says you should not forget that it's the worst time of year for out-of-control forest and brush fires. This is "Wildfire Prevention Week," to remember the upcoming anniversary of last May's blaze in Douglas and Bayfield counties that blackened 74-hundred acres -- the state's largest forest fire in 33 years. It was only last week that far northern Wisconsin had up to 19-inches of snow.
