FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Despite remnants of snow being seen across Wisconsin, the Fond du Lac Fire Department is alerting residents about the rising danger of brush fires.
Fire officials Tuesday say the warmer temperatures combined with windy weather is making for some dangerous conditions.
Last week, Fond du Lac had its first grass fire of 2014. There have also been reports of several other small grass fires around that area Monday.
To help with battling grass and brush fires, the fire department is rolling out a new, six-wheel ATV. The vehicle is equipped with a water tank, pump and hose for use in areas larger fire equipment can’t access.
