Fire danger lowered to moderate in much of the area


Eau Claire (WQOW) - The fire danger has eased quite a bit in western Wisconsin for now. The DNR was listing the danger as 'high' in much of our region this week.

But on Friday the fire danger was lowered to 'moderate' thanks to rain this week. It's too early to say if the hot windy weather in the forecast will push that back up.

Also, the fire danger is back up to 'high' in Polk, Washburn and Burnett counties in northwestern Wisconsin.
