Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources is lifting burn restrictions in eight southern and central counties, but there is still a risk for wildfires in other parts of the state.
That means anyone who wants to burn in Green Lake, Marquette, Oconto, Waupaca and Waushara counties must still get a temporary permit from the D.N.R.
Forest protection officers say the drought in the eastern part of the state is long-term and it will take several heavy rains to cut the possibility of sparking a forest fire.
