Lessons learned from forest fire
Wisconsin’s largest forest fire in 33 years swept through Douglas County last year. Originating in the town of Gordon the afternoon of May 14, 2013, the Germann Road Fire grew to 7,442 acres over the course of two days. Response to the fire was quick. DNR rangers spotted the smoke from the fire from three separate towers. They reported it at 2:45 p.m. and by 2:56 p.m. units were arriving on the scene, according to Jay Gallagher, Brule area forestry supervisor with the DNR.
