The National Weather Service has put out a notice that the abnormally warm, sunny weather has a dark side: It makes fires more likely in the blowdown area of far northern Wisconsin.

Burnett County Emergency Management Director Rhonda Reynolds said the usual brown-up that autumn brings adds to the problem. “A lot of the understory is starting to die as a natural progression as we move into fall. So, things are starting to get a little crispy in the woods,” Reynolds said.
