Wildfire prompts evacuations on eastern Iron Range
By Andrew Krueger Today at 8:08 p.m.

A wildfire prompted evacuations on the eastern Iron Range on Friday night as warm, dry weather created dangerous fire conditions across the region.

The U.S. Forest Service reported that the fire burning in the Skibo area, about six miles southeast of Hoyt Lakes, had forced the evacuation of six to eight seasonal cabins.

The Northland Village assisted living facility on the eastern side of Hoyt Lakes also was being evacuated as a precaution, authorities said, with residents being moved to the Aurora Community Center.

“For precautionary reasons they’ve evacuated some homes out in that area (Skibo), and they’ve also evacuated the assisted-living home right on the edge of town,” said Hoyt Lakes City Councilor David Zins.

Winds were gusty out of the northwest on Friday night — which would bode well for Hoyt Lakes, pushing the flames in the opposite direction. But there were some concerns that “the wind (may) change later this evening, and because (the fire) isn’t under control, they don’t want to take a chance” with the residents of Northland Village, Zins said.

Thick haze and smoke was reported in Hoyt Lakes and across much of the Northland on Friday night, ushered in on northwest winds from the massive wildfires in Canada. Scanner traffic indicated several calls from Northland residents concerned about smoke from a possible wildfire in their neighborhood — only to have the source of the smoke attributed to the Canadian fires.

The Forest Service reported that the Skibo fire was called in at about 3 p.m. and as of 6:30 p.m. was estimated at 100 acres and growing. Multiple ground crews and aircraft were fighting the fire, and were contending with the gusty northwest winds and haze.

Wooooooow. Check this out.

"A plume of smoke from Canadian wildfires has reached Minnesota, leading to an air pollution health advisory for the northeastern part of the state through Saturday night.
The advisory issued by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) covers the Arrowhead region, including the Iron Range and the North Shore. Hibbing, International Falls, Duluth, and Grand Marais are among the cities under the advisory, which continues through 10 p.m. Saturday."

Yes. And it's these kinds of wild temp swings up and down that prepare the ground for fires that erupt to spread quickly and violently. The kinds of temp fluctuations we're seeing in many areas accelerate the depletion of moisture in the environment. Coupled to everything else taking place environmentally, it's good to be prepared and pay attention to one's locally developing conditions...

I wonder how many were sent to help out in Canada. I hope Minnesota didn't lose any firefighters to Canada. I'm a retired flight attendant, and I always found it interesting when we'd have firemen onboard on a flight, wearing their gear. They'd be flying somewhere far from their home states to help other firemen fight fires elsewhere.

I've been up there quite a few times. It's beautiful and so peaceful.

It's definitely cooler in the Upper Midwest today.
Windy, at least here in northern IL.

Looking at the satellite loop, I don't see any smoke plumes now in northern MN.

I can see the smoke from western Canada coming down in the upper left corner of the image.
