This was info I got late last night
The size of the Sleeper Lake fire has been downgraded to 12,000 acres. Pine stump is still under evacuation at this time. M-123 will remain closed through the evening and the DNR will have a good amount of the crews come in tonight to get some rest.
The winds and temps and higher humidity for Monday won’t help. A.M. winds are to be from the west, NW later in the afternoon. This means they will fight the fire from the East and SE. 3 helicopters from the Air National Guard and a water bomber were used on Sunday.
Later today, I am probably going to have to go through and delete some of the stories and photos in order to get my side bar back. I'm just letting you know this in case you wanted to print any copies off the site prior to me doing that.
Also, later this a.m. or some time today, I am going to write to you about an interview I had yesterday and this will totally explain how rumors get started. I was kind of upset with this person after the interview. I know he/she was "doing his/her job" but...well, you'll understand when you read it.
