MADISON, WI-- Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources officials say the heightened risk of fire danger will continue through this weekend.
Officials say gusty winds, very low humidity, and little chances of precipitation will lead to critical fire weather conditions continuing into early next week.
DNR officials are asking the public to avoid outdoor burning or activities that can lead to fires. This includes limiting campfires and off-road vehicles, as well as disposing hot ashes from wood stoves in grass or wooded areas.
Burning remains suspended with DNR-issued burning permits for debris piles, barrels, and grass or wooded areas, according to the DNR.
