Ignited by a single match, the Five Mile Tower Fire of 1977 raged out of control for seventeen hours. It would be one of the largest wildland fires in Wisconsin history, ultimately destroying more than 13,000 acres of land and sixty-three buildings. With jack pines exploding around them and flames spiraling overhead, DNR rangers, volunteer firefighters, and high school students fought to extinguish the devastating fire. Drawing on his own experiences during the long battle, plus dozens of interviews and other eyewitness accounts, Bill Matthais presents an in-depth look at the Five Mile Tower Fire, the brave citizens who helped fight it, and the important changes made to firefighting laws and procedures in its aftermath.
