Greenwood fire doubles, grows to 30 square miles
August 25, 2021
DULUTH – The Greenwood fire burning in northeastern Minnesota's Superior National Forest doubled in size Monday, stretching to some 30 square miles.
As teams fight the state's largest wildfire, four new smaller fires started Monday within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, and a fire at the edge of Ontario's Quetico Provincial Park moved closer to the Canadian border.
Officials extended the BWCA closure another week, to Sept. 3, as a result.
