Full Link on incident Here


The fire is now 95 percent contained.

One of today's objectives was to backhaul excess equipment, hose, and trash off the fireline. Firefighters hauled 10 miles of hose off the line to a drop point at the end of Wolf Lake Road. From there, Conservation Corps Minnesota and Iowa crew members loaded the hose into trucks and brought it back to the incident command post in Ely. They untangled the hoses, spread them out in straight lines, and hooked them up to a rolling machine, which turned them into compact round bundles that were stacked on pallets. The pallets will be returned to the fire cache at the Minnesota Interagency Fire Center in Grand Rapids. There it will be washed and dried prior to being stored, ready to send to the next incident when ordered.

BWCAW entry point #4 (Crab Lake entry point) will reopen on Friday morning.
