Over twenty area firefighters spend Thanksgiving battling brush fire


Menomonie (WQOW) - Thursday afternoon the Menomonie Fire Department was called in for a brush fire in the Town of Lucas.

No one was injured. The battalion chief says about 12 acres of grass and wooded area burned. He says windy conditions and a campfire in a resident's yard started the fire.

Boyceville and Spring Valley also responded. Over twenty firefighters spent five hours battling the flames. The chief says the fire was along a hill, which made it difficult to catch. The fire was accidental and the residents that started it were not fined.
