Mukwonago grass fire

MUKWONAGO — Mukwonago fire officials say a man apparently started a grass fire in a subdivision while trying to “smoke out” squirrels from his property Wednesday, July 4th.

Fire officials say doing this involves lighting a fuse and tossing the fuse into a hole or opening where the critter lives.

Officials say the grass caught fire and spread to about a dozen yards in the subdivision.

No homes were damaged as a result of the fire.

10 departments were called in for mutual aid.

Officials say the man will receive citations because of the burn ban in Mukwonago.
