MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says the danger of wildfires is extremely high in Bayfield and Douglas counties.

The DNR issued a red flag warning for the two counties Thursday. Permit burning isn’t allowed in barrels, debris piles and grass and wooded areas because of the conditions. Also campfires, fireworks and outdoor smoking aren’t recommended.

The agency says the danger of wildfires is high or very high in 62 of Wisconsin’s 70 other counties.
