    Default Luce County Forest Fire - Duck Lake - How You Can Help




    Don't know if you had heard yet, but a fire in the Two Heart/Pike Lake/Little Lake area of the U.P. has burned 22,000 acres, 34 homes and cabins, the Rainbow Lodge, also the Pike Lake Resort and the Two Hearted River Chapel. In addition the Tahquamenon Falls State Park has been closed due to heavy smoke and the proximity of the south edge of the fire (only 7 miles from the falls and 13 miles from Newberry). Flames up to 200 feet high have been documented in the very dry jack pine areas.

    Many stunning photos have been released to show the intensity of burning Jack Pine in Luce County right now,
    a good sample here: Wildfires burning in at least 3 states | The Lookout - Yahoo! News

    More info and maps of the Duck Lake Fire located at: DNR - Department of Natural Resources

    Those displaced have been sheltered by the Red Cross at the teen activity center (The Link)
    in downtown Newberry. Those interested in helping the newly homeless, or providing water,
    Gatorade, toiletries, etc for the 200+ firefighters, please go to Red Cross - Superior Upper Peninsula Chapter

    You will have no problems going to Bay Mills, Newberry, Muskallonge Lake, Seney, or Grand Marais.
    Could be smoke at times along M-123 and M-28.

    Travel to Paradise and Whitefish Point is OK - but could be very smoky there still. Both of the Tahquamenon Falls still closed.
