The wind blows on. The eerie red glow over the end of the Gunflint Trail last night at 11pm has now moved to the north. As far as I’ve heard, all of the people are still safe. We need rain. We need calm. We are extemely grateful for the volunteer fire departments that have been working in the area. They have evacuated the entire upper Gunflint Trail. Please pray for the safety of these courageous men and women. It was an inferno out there last night.
As of 11pm, Tuscarora was still OK. They managed to quell some flare ups that occurred yesterday….the embers are still hot and sparkly. Nothing about this fire is contained.
We feel incredibly sad.
