Wildfire in Michigan's Upper Peninsula continues to burn

LUCE COUNTY, Mich. -- A Michigan wildfire continues to burn.

A lightning strike last week Wednesday caused a massive wildfire in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Gov. Rick Snyder declared a state of disaster in Luce and Schoolcraft Counties.

Nearly 18,000 acres have been destroyed near Duck Lake.

"Cabins down in the Culhane Lake area, they've had bulldozers going around them they've got lines around them and we're doing everything we can when it's safe to make sure they're protected.

The Department of Natural Resources said the fire is now 20 percent contained.
