TOWN OF BARABOO (WKOW) -- Agencies are responding after a plane made an emergency landing in the town of Baraboo Saturday afternoon.

The Sauk County Sheriff's Office responded to a report that the plane landed on Highway 136 just after 2:30 p.m.

Officials said the road was already closed because the bridge was under construction.

Law enforcement said Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources and Baraboo Fire and EMS are assisting.

Deputies spoke with the pilot, Joseph R. Fullerton, of Saint Ignace, Michigan. He said the plane started to have a fuel line issue forcing him to make an emergency landing, which was successful.

The sheriff's office said there were no injuries and the plane's wing was only damaged a little by a tree branch.
