Episode Narrative Strong southwest winds, with frequent gusts of 30 mph to 45 mph, developed ahead of an approaching cold front. The wind downed tree limbs that landed on power lines, causing the lines to come down. The downed power lines started a number of fires, including one near Pelican Lake.

Fires in Oneida County and Vilas County burned more than 15 acres. Wind gusts as high as 42 mph downed a couple of trees, including one that was 40 feet tall and a foot in diameter, near Plover in Portage County. Winds, gusting to 38 mph, fanned a brush fire near Green Bay in Brown County.
