Smokey the Bear has returned to the fire alert sign on Highway 66 near the Stevens Point Airport.
The bear is a replacement for the original Smokey, which has been stolen several times, according to Lt. Nick Proulix from the Town of Hull Fire Department.
Proulix said the bear was last stolen in April 2013 and has not been recovered.
Hull maintains the sign, which alerts passersby to the current fire danger level.
