Department of Natural Resources law enforcement officials Friday identified the owner of the land where the Douglas County wildfire, also known as the Germann Road Fire, originated as well as the logging operation responsible for unintentionally igniting the fire.
Even to the untrained eye, as last week’s Germann Road fire still smoldered, a pattern was obvious: Of those cabins and homes that burned, many were tucked tight into the forest. Of those nearby that still stood when the smoke cleared, many had large, open yards.
The largest forest fire to hit Wisconsin in three decades has been contained. The fire began in Gordon on Tuesday afternoon and traveled more than eight miles into Barnes and Highland, gobbling up 8,131 acres and destroying 47 structures.
