Gunflint Trail Fire

The national news is reporting on the fires in California & Florida & Georgia. We have our own problems here in the relatively far north. The Ham Lake fire is causing all kinds of trouble along the Gunflint Trail in MN.

As trees exploded into giant balls of flame on the ridges above the north shore of Gunflint Lake, authorities ordered people to leave their homes, cabins and resorts from Cook County Road 92 westward along the 60-mile dead-end trail, including residents on Gunflint, Loon and Sutton lakes.
