Since we have seen a good deal of clouds, spotty showers and cool temperatures over the past few days thanks to a stubborn upper-level low pressure system, the wildfire in Minnesota has fallen out of the headlines.
But what ever happened to it?
The Pagami Creek Wildfire burning in the arrowhead of Minnesota not far from the Ontario border quickly became the talk of the town a few weeks back. Many people across Central Wisconsin could smell and see the haze when northwesterly winds pushed the smoke in our direction.
Despite the cool and wet weather that wildfire is still burning, and according to the Superior National Forest website is still only 45% contained.
The wildfire has been burning for well over a month. Started by a lightning strike on August 18th, the Pagami Creek Fire has torched 93,459 acres so far.
For updated reports on the progress firefighters are making on the blaze, check out the Superior National Forest Incident Information System website for more details.
