Grantsburg, WI (NNCNOW.com) - A planned Department of Natural Resources burn used to restore wildlife habitat got out of hand Tuesday.
The DNR said the prescribed burn was 505 acres, but burned about an additional 600 acres on state land in Burnett County north of Grantsburg. That's about 50 miles west of Spooner.
Firefighters were able to put a stop to the fire around 7 p.m. Tuesday by DNR crews with Minnesota air mutual aide.
No structures were damaged and no one was injured.
