Governor Scott Walker to ask President Barack Obama for help. Governor Walker
sent a letter to the White House yesterday, urging the President to establish

it's needed. In a statement, Governor Walker says the federal government has
been cooperative with assisting so far and is proposing the working group as a
follow-up. In addition to the shortage, experts say demand, weather and
temporary pipeline closures is to blame for the short supply of propane across
the Midwest... including Wisconsin.
Walworth County fire officials say they're trying to

spreading to other buildings. While a damage estimate has not been release,
reports indicate an estimated 300-thousand chickens were housed in the barn.
