"Only a fragmentary record of the early forest fires in Wisconsin is available. The official records start with 1904 but are far from complete. From then until 1930 it is estimated that, on the average, some 2,500 fires occurred annually, and that approximately half a million acres burned over each year. [Level reduced since.]"
