MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers has declared a state of emergency for the City of Madison and Dane County following fires at two electric substations.

An executive order issued by Evers says the declaration was issued to "provide support during the large power outage that is exacerbated by the extreme heat wave affecting the area."
