Burn permits suspended Wednesday due to wildfire conditions

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - All burning permits in Wisconsin have been suspended for Wednesday, due to the dry and windy conditions that have been fueling the huge wildfire in Douglas and Bayfield counties.

The DNR and the National Weather Service announced a Red Flag Warning for Florence and Marinette counties.

Officials say the risk of more wildfires is very high in most of the Badger State – and hazardous conditions are expected to continue until there’s a change in the weather pattern.

Trent Marty of the state DNR says his agency asks that no campfires be made, and people should not smoke in wooded and grassy areas.
