Boundary Waters named by USA Today as one of the Top Ten Places to Extend the Summer

Report on the Tuesday Fire, 7/5/02

Firefighters are feeling positive about their efforts in the Tuesday Fire, which began July 2.  As of 5:00 PM Friday, crews were holding the perimeter at an estimated 50% containment. 

At the scene of the 430 acre fire, Ron Sanow explained that they had not received the rain they had hoped for.  They only had a light dusting accumulating to less than 1/100th of an inch.  He said the overall humidity from the day has helped.

With additional fire crews having arrived, and Jesse Ventura's activation of the National Guard troops, the crew is now at 175.  Additional crews are scheduled to arrive.

No structures have been lost in the fire. The crews plan to continue with mop up efforts and holding the perimeter.  Lightening is believed to be the cause of the fire.
