The Wisconsin Supreme Court determined that a fire damaging several properties arose from one occurrence. Secura Ins. v. Lyme St. Croix Forest Company, LLC., 2018 Wis. LEXIS 579 Oct. 30, 2018).

A fire broke out on forest land owned by Lyme St. Croix Forest Company. Known as the "Germann Road Fire," it burned 7, 442 acres over three days. Real and personal property belonging to many individuals and businesses were damaged. The fire allegedly began while equipment owned by Ray Duerr Logging, LLC was being repaired. Flames quickly spread from dry grass to a pile of recently felled trees and spread to the surrounding forest.
