Weary firefighters get an edge on Nimrod blaze
A platoon of firefighters, heavy equipment and helicopters mounted a ground and air attack on a fast-moving wildfire south of Nimrod Sunday.
By Monday morning, the blaze had been 80 percent contained, according to a spokesman for the DNR's Division of Forestry. More than 1,400 acres had burned.
The fire is under investigation, said Public Information Officer Ron Sanow. A Jeep was located at the point of ignition in Section 13, three miles south of Nimrod.
