Duluth, MN (KDAL) - Fire crews battling through the night and into this afternoon have encircled that wild fire burning across southern Douglas County and Bayfield County.  That’s according to the D-N-R’s Catherine Koele who says the flames have destroyed 17 homes and another 30 buildings across about 92-hundred acres.  But she notes that the fight isn’t over yet…

While a total of 47 buildings have been destroyed, firefighters have saved 77 structures, including 42 homes.  59 people have been evacuated and there have been no reports of injuries.  The cause of the fire remains under investigation. 

Back to the firefighting efforts, firefighters from as far away as Minnesota and Michigan have been assisting local crews.  Two Army National Guard helicopters are en-route and Koele says C-L 4-15 water bombers from Ontario will be joining the effort this afternoon.
