Firefighters from Michigan and four other states have contained a wildfire that burned more than eleven-hundred acres in the western Upper Peninsula.
But hot, dry weather is keeping them on alert.
The fire in Baraga County was contained yesterday, eight days after it blew out of control during a controlled burn near Covington. That's about 60 miles west of Marquette.
The fire jumped the Sturgeon River a week ago today and forced the temporary evacuation of 30 homes, although none were destroyed. No serious injuries have been reported.
US Forest Service personnel from Colorado, Indiana, Missouri and New Hampshire joined state and tribal firefighters in battling the blaze
