Power line starts Ephraim fire

A down power line is to blame for a fire Saturday morning at the Peninsula State Park Golf Course.


According to Ephraim Fire Chief Justin MacDonald, firefighters were dispatched at 8:15 a.m. to Holand Road near the golf course's short course where a power line fell and started nearby trees on fire. Crews had to wait for hours for assistance since Wisconsin Public Service was responding to other down power lines due to morning storms. After WPS was able to shut off the power, firefighters were able to cut down the line and the trees to extinguish the blaze with a combination of foam and water. No injuries were reported and crews were able to clear the scene just after 1:30 p.m.
