The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says that much of Wisconsin is under a high fire risk. 

Critical fire conditions due to strong winds, low humidity and dry vegetation are resulting in high fire danger. 

The DNR has a map on their website indicating the level of fire danger in each county. 

They also warnthat you should make sure to have a written and signed annual burn permit, before burning. 

You can get a free burning permit online or by calling 1-888-WIS-BURN. You also can visit an emergency fire warden or DNR office to get a permit in person.
