Report on the Tuesday Fire

MN Dept of Natural Resources, 7/7/02

The Tuesday Fire near Hovland, MN was contained as of 10:00 PM Saturday, July 6th. Equipment and personnel were beginning to return to their home units.

The fire was discovered on July 2nd through aerial detection. Lightning is believed to be the cause of the fire. It was about 80% contained on July 3rd, but deteriorating weather conditions caused the fire to get outside containment lines and it grew to over 400 acres by July 4th. Crews and equipment were on the scene and were able to hit the escaped area hard and get the containment line secured once again. Even though the fire is considered 100% contained, crews and equipment continue to secure lines, eliminate hotspots within,and level and rehabilitate dozer lines throughout the day today.
