SLIDESHOW: Funeral for Deputy Mike Seversen • Photos by Greg Marsten
LEWIS - Firefighters from the DNR and Frederic Fire Department contained a three-acre wildfire early Monday afternoon April 21, just a few miles east of Lewis off of 100th Street. Dry conditions along with a steady breeze made conditions ripe for wildfires. April 20-26 has been declared Wildfire Prevention week with the theme “Be Ember Aware.” The public is encouraged to check burned debris piles, campfires and other deposits of ash to make sure there aren’t embers still smoldering underneath. - Photo by Gary King
