GRANTSBURG, Wis. (AP) — Crews from eight fire departments helped battle a blaze at a dairy cooperative that is one of Burnett County’s largest employers and is a popular stop for tourists in western Wisconsin.
Sheriff’s officials say the fire at Burnett Dairy Cooperative was reported about 10:30 p.m. Monday. Employees working in the cooperative located near Grantsburg, were able to make it out safely.
