  • Newberry FireBy: Megan Z

  • About The FireThe winds out North were also very unpredictable, not knowing which way they are going to blow each day was a big struggle.

  • An out-of-control fire in mostly uninhabited backwoods grew to 14,300 acres Monday, fanned by breezes that draped an acrid layer of smoke over this village in the eastern Upper Peninsula.

  • No injuries were reported and no structures had been damaged, although some evacuations had been ordered and authorities warned about 125 residents at a community meeting west of town they could be next.

  • Biggest Fire In Upper PeninsulaThis is probably the worst fire in the Upper Peninsula in recent memory, and the emergency responders are doing a terrific job fighting the fire
