Crews continue to make progress in U.P. forest fire

Andrew Norton

The Sleeper Lake Forest Fire is estimated to be 67% contained and the chance of some more rain showers on Thursday would definitely be a help. Firefighters continue to battle the blaze with the help of marshmasters (they look like mini-tanks), three Blackhawk helicopters, and two CL-215 water bombing aircraft. Read today's Marquette Mining Journal article about the fire.

Upper Peninsula forest fire continues to burn

Andrew Norton

The fire in Michigan's Upper Peninsula that is believed to have been caused by lightning has now destroyed over 15,000 acres. Thankfully there have been no injuries as of yet due to the fire. Evacuations for some nearby residents is also a possibility. This is the state's largest forest fire since one in 1999 burned just over 5,000 acres in western Marquette County.

The current fire is creeping up on Tahquamenon Falls state park and is also within 6 miles of Newberry. Residents have been informed that evacuations are still a possibility.
