This is the most current info I have; 9700 acres have burned so far. The helicopter with the big water bucket is returning and we are getting two planes to assist as well.
The wind today is out of the south (as it was yesterday). I can hear planes in the air, but they are also using a spotter plane (as I've been told anyway). The DNR is bulldozing "a road" back towards Cheeseborough Lake in order to create a fire boundary in order to be able to get to the fire.
Stay tuned...and again, I can't say enough about the effort that is being put forth with this whole thing.
