A major wildfire has erupted across the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and has destroyed almost 100 structures. Officials with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources indicated the Duck Lake Fire has burned more than 22,000 acres, or 34 square miles, in one county alone. By late Monday the fire was just over 50% contained. The governor last week barred fireworks and outdoor burning in 49 Michigan counties due to extremely dry conditions. Some light rain has helped over the past two days.
