The fire at Cavalier Bar began Wednesday afternoon at about the same time as crews became occupied with a fire that raged in a swampy field between Morrice and Bancroft, near the Winegar and Godfrey Road intersection.  As crews worked to extinguish the field fire, two fire trucks became stuck in the swamp grass, further complicating the task.

Air assistance and mutual aid from any department was requested as more than a mile of grass burned before the fire was contained, according to a post on the Shiawassee County 911 Repeater Facebook page.  Air support by a team training in Fowlerville soon arrived, according to comments on the page.

 Shiawassee Township Fire also assisted.

Perry Area Fire Rescue announced after the Winegar fire a burn ban for its coverage area, including the City of Perry and Perry, Bennington and Antrim Townships until further notice due to the dangerously dry conditions.
