Fond du Lac fire officials say warmer weather and dry-windy conditions are increasing the potential for a very active grass-brush fire season. Fire prevention specialist Troy Haase says residents can take steps
to minimize the chance of accentally causing an outside fire this spring. Haase says people need to be careful when discarding cigarettes. Haase says the fire department has added a new tool to its fire suppression fleet…a six wheel ATV complete with a water tank, pump and hose to fight fires in fields and other areas where a fire engine cannot access.
