MILWAUKEE (AP) — The National Weather Service has extended heat warnings for parts of Wisconsin into Saturday — after days of excessive temperatures that reached into the 100s.
The high heat has been blamed for three deaths in Wisconsin and is suspected in a fourth.
Heat-related deaths were reported in La Crosse, Lone Rock and Janesville. The death of an Onalaska man is also being investigated as possibly related to the heat.
