NOTICE: Burning

Fire Danger is VERY HIGH today!! Call before burning–715-386-4701 

**DNR Website:   **

Always check before you burn as fire danger and burning restrictions change every day.  The DNR website updates the fire situation daily.

The Town of St Joseph does not update the fire danger level on weekends.  Please see the sign at the Town Hall or go to the DNR website for updated fire situations.


  • Report fires early by calling 911; don’t try to put out a fire by yourself. 
  • Avoid outdoor burning until conditions improve. Burn permits for debris burning are currently suspended in many counties.
  • Operate equipment (chainsaws, off-road vehicles, lawnmowers, etc.) early in the morning or late in the day to avoid sparks at peak burn hours.
  • Secure dragging trailer chains to avoid creating sparks.
  • Never operate drones/unmanned aircraft over or near fires – it endangers the lives of pilots and firefighters and interferes with fire suppression operations.

Check current fire danger, wildfire reports and burning restrictions on the DNR’s website.
