Madison area deals with dry conditions and winds

MADISON (WKOW) -- Fire departments in Southern Wisconsin respond to four blazes Sunday. This has prompted a warning to have a safety plan in place and be aware of the conditions outside.

An apartment caught fire in Portage about 4:30 Sunday afternoon. Fire officials say a person inside the apartment tried to put out the fire.

Firefighters say to be aware of outside conditions. They recommend not burning leaves and other materials when it's windy. It's important to make sure your smoke detectors are working.

Meteorologist Brian Olson says the rain Monday could help conditions for a few days, but the weather will become dry again.
