Lake Hallie (WQOW) - The fire danger is rising with the temperature.
Fire crews were called to a grass fire on 26th Avenue near the Lake Hallie Golf Course around 11:00 AM. Firefighters were able to quickly contain the fire, which they believe was caused by a recent controlled burn.
"The condition of the grass right now is extremely dry, so if you have a controlled burn, and we're hoping people don't burn right now, and the wind picks it up, it'll take off and we could have an extensive fire, we got this one stopped pretty quick," says John Neihart, Chippewa Fire District.
The fire danger in western Wisconsin ranges from moderate to extreme. It's listed as high in Chippewa and Dunn counties. In Eau Claire County the fire danger is very high.
