The updates, as you've noticed, are coming less frequently and not as much to report, so that is good news!
With that in mind, shortly, I'm going to be "returning" to more of my "regular format", or in other words, the reason for which I started Yooper Yarns. But for now, read on;
The Bell 430 helicopter with the infrared technology that was used to locate hot spots is actually owned and operated by the Michigan State Police. There has been no mention of how many hot spots that "showed up".
The fire fighting operation is now gearing more towards hand crews instead of heavy equipment because the hand crews can get in where the equipment cannot. There is stil a lot of organic fuels 'out there'.
The DNR consider the fire still at 50% containment and the acreage burned is holding at 18,680 acres.
