Yesterday there were several fires started along the railroad tracks. On 7 and 101 the Mesabi Daily News reported "Using water bombers, engines and brush trucks, firefighters battled an 80-acre wildfire for more than five hours that threatened homes near West Eveleth Tuesday.". They say they aren't sure what started the fire and it is under investigation.
On Keenan Road the biker's almost lost their clubhouse as the fire was there also. Thay have a plastic shield (sort of like the thing we used for the Mines and Pines) and the plastic on it melted. The other buildings were saved, but the fire got very close.
Shawn said there were 4 fires that started along the tracks, so I'm not sure where the others were.
We need RAIN!!!
