Fire Burns 2 Acres Outside Of Rosendale

Fire place ashes appear to be the cause of a field fire that occurred Sunday morning between Ripon and Rosendale.

The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department was notified Sunday (12/19/2021) shortly before 11:30 a.m., that a field located on Center Rd, located northwest of Rosendale, was on fire.

Police logs show a 45-year old female had been dumping ashes from her fireplace in the grass, near a field. Embers from the ashes blew into the field, causing the field to catch fire. Nearly 2 acres were burned before the fire was extinguished by the Rosendale Fire Department.

There were no injuries reported, and no reports of any other damage as a result of the fire.
