DNR: Wildfire in Michigan's Upper Peninsula destroys 100 structures

LUCE COUNTY, Mich -- Crews in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula are working continuously tirelessly to put out a raging wildfire.

Dozens of buildings have burned to the ground. The DNR said about 100 structures at Duck Lake are destroyed. Most of them are homes or cabins.

So far the flames have ripped through more than 22,000 acres of land and not surprisingly, it's expensive to fight.

The price tag currently stands at more than $450,000.  A lightening strike caused the fire to spark last Wednesday.

On Friday, the governor declared the region a disaster area.
