The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office is urging residents to use caution when conducting controlled burns. Sheriff Pat Ninmann says over the past two days the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office received over 18 fire calls with the majority of them starting as a controlled burn. Ninmann says the fires resulted in out buildings catching on fire and causing severe damage and placing undue risk to the numerous fire department that were called to respond. Thursday a fire at the Horicon Marsh burned 110 acres. Ninmann says the Sheriff’s Office is urging the citizens to think twice before having a controlled burn. She says the dry and windy conditions make for a potentially dangerous situation.
