A car caught fire after a collision with a deer in Waupaca County Sunday night.
This comes as the state reminds drivers to be alert for an increase in deer activity.
The crash happened Sunday, Oct. 6., on Highway 22 south of Stratton Lake Rd in the Township of Dayton.
The Waupaca County Sheriff's Office received a call at 8:47 p.m. reporting a car-deer crash with lane blockage on the highway.
About 18 minutes later, the driver called to report flames coming from the hood of the car.
Deputies and Waupaca firefighters put on the fire and safely moved the vehicle out of the roadway. Highway 22 was closed for about 30 minutes.
The driver was not hurt.
The deer did not survive.
