Fire crews continue to battle UP wildfire

LUCE COUNTY, Mich. -- Firefighters continue to struggle to put out a wildfire in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Lightning sparked the Duck Lake fire last week. So far, more than 22 thousand acres have been destroyed.

Fire crews have difficulty getting to the flames because of the lack of roads in the area.

And officials warn that the area is extremely dangerous. The DNR stated only people with escorts are allowed in the area.

"We've been having a problem with ATV's sneaking in and what not, what those people don't realize is they're really risking their lives," Dean Wilson, an official with Michigan's Department of Natural Resources (DNR) stated.

The fire is about 47 percent contained.
