Town of Calumet Marsh Fire Under Investigation

Between 13 to 18 acres were burned by a pair of fires in the Town of Calumet early Tuesday morning. The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office is working with the DNR and fire officials to determine a cause – but until then, the fires are being treated as suspicious. Eight local fire departments teamed up to battle both of the fires after the initial marsh fire was reported around 3:00AM. Fire danger remains high in Fond du Lac County – along with much of the state – and officials are asking people to avoid burning or dropping smoking materials outside.
