Local Fire Risk High

Barron County is the only county in western Wisconsin not at a high risk for wildfires.

The state’s Department of Natural Resources this week updated its fire risk map. Nearly every county in the northern two-thirds of the state is in the high risk category, that includes Eau Claire and Chippewa County. Only Barron and Douglas counties are at a lower risk.
