Marsh fire draws multiple area fire departments

Fond du Lac County officials believe a broken down ATV was the cause of a vegetation fire yesterday that drew the response of 10 different fire departments from three different counties.

About 11:16 Sunday morning, the Fond du Lac County Communication Center received a call of a fire in a field area on County Highway CCC west of County Highway G in the Town of Marshfield. When fire departments arrived on scene they found a swamp area consisting of mostly cattails on the south side of CCC on fire.

CCC was closed between G and Hillview Road for 2.5 hours and about 25 acres burned.
