Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson is often on fire on the football field. But local law enforcement say a billboard featuring the star is not on fire.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office says dispatchers have received "dozens of calls" over the last week about two billboards that "appear to be on fire."

The billboards feature an Associated Bank ad with Jordy Nelson coming out of the tunnel at Lambeau Field. The billboard uses a fog device. However, some people have confused the fog for smoke.

The billboards are located on State Highway 172 westbound, near County Highway GV; and State Highway 29 eastbound near mile marker 250.

The fog device runs Friday afternoon through Sunday during Packers home and away games.
