Getting to the bottom of the fire story

I wanted to bring you the very latest in the Eau Claire (Wis.) jersey-burning fracas, which we introduced you to Wednesday via this video.

According to the Leader-Telegram, which has been ahead on this story from the start, the Eau Claire fire department has stepped and forced a scaleback of plans to burn Brett Favre memorabilia for charity during Monday night’s game between Minnesota and Green Bay. Instead, one item of clothing will be burned and the rest will be donated to Goodwill. (Lord knows where a full-scale bonfire might have led.)

Proceeds will still be given to the Wisconsin Alliance for Fire Safety.
