Wildfire Forces Closure of Highway 89 Near Bemidji
The Bemidji Fire Department and DNR firefighters responded to another wildfire Thursday not far from the recent, first wildfire in Eckles Township.
This one was reported just after 2 PM Thursday and burned about 15 acres near the Northland Regional Sports Park. The fire forced the closure of Highway 89 between Radar Road and Jackpine Road for a brief period of time.
A DNR aircraft helped drop water on the fire, and the situation was brought under control within a few hours. The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
