I just ran across these WEAU Channel 13 News screen captures from last year which I had forgotten about. These photos are of the Germann Road Wildfire in Northern Wisconsin near Gordon. This was the largest forest fire in Wisconsin in 33 years. The Wisconsin DNR reported that the fire consumed 8,131 acres of forest land across Douglas and Bayfield Counties.
All the photos from this fire can be seen at www.dewitzphotography.com/personal-photography-projects/the-aftermath-of-the-devastating-forest-fire-in-northern-wisconsin
