Five departments battle wind, flames in dairy barn blaze
Two farm-related fires within 15 minutes of one another had crews from Prescott, River Falls and Ellsworth scrambling to help.
The first call came about 2:10 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 11, from N6568 CTH QQ, a large dairy farm, where hay was reported ablaze in the mow area of a dairy barn. Pierce County property records list Paula Fiedler of River Falls as the farm's owner. Neighbors say it is run by brothers Mike, Matt and Lee Fiedler.
