High risk for burning in Washington County | By Ron Naab

April 20, 2019 – Washington Co., WI – It is a dangerous time of the year for wildland/grass fires.  Because the ground is wet and muddy, doesn’t indicate we can safely burn dead vegetation, brush piles, etc.

High fire danger in Washington County

The last few days Washington County and southeastern Wisconsin have experienced dry, gusting wind. This wind dries the dead vegetation quickly.
In Washington County alone there have been a number of wildland fires.
Fire officials express concern of burning in areas of dry vegetation and having these fires burn with no one in attendance or equipment to help suppress.
