ECKLES TOWNSHIP -- The Minnesota Incident Command System released an update Thursday morning, July 15, on the status of cleanup and control of Tuesday's wildfire on the south side of Radar Road in Eckles Township.

According to the release, on Wednesday the local DNR unit transitioned command of the fire to MNICS to provide additional logistical support. Firefighters continued to strengthen the containment line around the fire perimeter and mop up hot spots within the burn area to prevent fire spread.

Multiple jurisdictions are continuing to investigate the cause of the fire, which has been determined as human-caused, though no other details are available at this time due to the active investigation, the release said.
