State leaders visit site of Douglas County wildfire

Gov. Scott Walker, Maj. Gen. Donald Dunbar, adjutant general of Wisconsin, and representatives from the state Department of Natural Resources and Wisconsin Emergency Management visited the site of an 8,000-acre wildfire in Douglas County May 16. The official party held a news conference at the incident command post at Gordon Town Hall and met residents affected by the blaze. Walker issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency in response to the forest fire. An aerial tour of the site illustrated the effectiveness of fire containment measures.
