Firefighters responded Monday night to a marsh fire in the town of Nepeuskun.
According to Ripon Area Fire District chief David Bathke, a lantern from a hunter tracking a deer set a fire off Island and Sportsman roads.
“We were there about an hour, hour and a half,” Bathke said.
In unrelated news that evening, firefighters also responded to a report of a carbon monoxide detector going off at a home off Hamburg Street. Evidently, the detector was malfunctioning, and no problem actually existed.
