LAKE TOMAHAWK, WI (WSAU) - You’ve heard that any little spark can start a big fire. That’s exactly what happened to a Lake Tomahawk man Saturday. He discarded a cigarette butt on the ground at his property and headed for town.
After the man left, the grass caught fire, and scorched about one acre of land. Then his barn burned down.
Fire officials are urging people to be especially careful with everything that burns, even after recent rains.
