A lack of rain, low humidity and gusty conditions has turned much of Michigan into a hot spot for wildfires.
Through Sunday, firefighters had responded to 104 fires statewide that burned a combined 578 acres. On the same date a year ago, 47 fires had burned 170 acres.
That total does not include a 250-acre fire that broke out yesterday at a hunting club north of Atlanta, in Montmorency County.
The Department of Natural Resources says about two-thirds of this season's fires have been caused by people burning debris in their yards.
Most Mid-Michigan communities have issued burning bans for the time being.
