Windy conditions with stil no rainfall resulted rapid expansion to around 16,000 acres. It's spread outside of the BWCA and some roads in the area have been closed and some folks told to evacuation. Experiencing a shortage of personnel and equipment to fight it also. Lightning strikes from a thunderstorm that rumbled through yesterday caused a few small wildfires in other areas too. Sure hope they get rain and a break from the winds very soon.
Today's Duluth News Tribune has atory on the current situation.
