Cottage Grove Fire Dept. warns against Sun Prairie phone scam

COTTAGE GROVE, Wis. - The Cottage Grove Fire Department is warning resident against a scam related to Sun Prairie relief efforts.

Fire officials said the caller ID will identify that caller as the "Volunteer Fire Department" from Cottage Grove. That caller will then ask for donations. 

Cottage Grove officials said this is a scam. 

They advise anyone wanting to donate to the Sun Prairie community to do so through the Bank of Sun Prairie Relief Fund
