Firefighters were called to W1800 Davis Creek Road, just south of the Jackson/La Crosse County Line about 1:20. According to WKBT, firefighters battled a few small fires at that location. Farmington Fire Department Assistant Chief Les Bryhn says he believes people were setting three separate fires and causing various burn areas. About three dozen firefighters from Farmington and Melrose were on the scene for a good portion of Friday afternoon.
