Firefighters have put out a fire that burned about an acre in the woods in Rib Mountain, near Bittersweet Road.
The DNR and Rib Mountain Fire Department were called to the scene late this morning.
The DNR is investigating what caused the fire. Rib Mountain Firefighters say this is a reminder that there is a high fire danger now. And the wind makes fires even more difficult to put out.
Newsline 9 has a crew at the scene and will provide more details as they become available.
It was a successful weekend hunt for numerous area kids who bagged their very first deer.
