A photo of a Wisconsin fire chief is getting a lot of traction online, as crews continued to fight fires in subzero temperatures. Wednesday, one of the firefighters on scene of a house fire in the Village of Cameron Fire snapped a photo of Chief Mitch Hansen, covered in ice from fighting the fire in the frigid wind chills. Crews say the home was gutted, but everyone was able to get out safe. When asked what it's like fighting fires when temperatures and wind chills are so low, Chief Hansen said "You're essentially frozen stiff on the outside, but warm on the inside."
