FOND DU LAC, Wis. (WTMJ)-- Several fire departments are fighting a marsh fire near Waupun in Fond du Lac County.

The fire was first reported around 10:30 a.m. Friday.

"It started out as a person burning some things on his property that got out of hand," said Chief Deputy Mark Strand with the Fond du Lac Sheriff's Office. "He called right away."

There are not any houses in the immediate area.

"Things get dry pretty fast," Strand said. "This just goes to show you things can get out of hand real fast."

At one point a dispatcher said the fire was "out of control."

Strand said the highway department may shut down County Road TC because of smoke.
