Containment for the Duck Lake fire in the U.P. has reached one-hundred percent.
Three weeks ago the Duck Lake fire was started by a lightning-strike. In total the fire burned twenty-one thousand and sixty-nine acres of land.
Ada Takacs is the Public Information Officer for the Duck Lake fire.
"Today the incident management team is pretty much leaving the area, so it's being turned over to the local DNR fire staff. They were the first one who did initial attack and work on it initially, so they will be on site, and they are being left with some equipment from other areas that will be monitoring the fire."
Takacs said damages from the fire included 49 residences.
Fortunately there were no serious injuries reported.
She said the local areas are open for business and tourism, but she encourages visitors to stay clear of ongoing fire-monitoring efforts.
