2000 acres is a big forest fire? The one in Arizona is over 300,000 acres and spreading, not to mention smoking everyone in the neighboring states out.

FREDERIC TWP. — Several Northern Michigan fire departments and crews from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) are currently battling a quickly spreading wildfire in northwest Crawford County which Otsego Lake Township Fire Dept. chief Joe Shelly said has burned at least 1,000 acres.


Shelly said his department received a request for standby around 2 p.m. from the Frederic Township Fire Dept. who responded to the initial blaze. The fire has been burning in the Manistee River Road area between County Road 612 to the north and M-72 to the south, near the Crawford/Kalkaska county border.


Officials with the Crawford County Sheriff’s Dept. reported residents in the Manistee River Road area had been evacuated because of the rapidly spreading blaze.




Shelly said winds from the south have been pushing the fire to the north. The blaze is being battled by fire departments from Frederic, Grayling, Lovells, Kalkaska and the DNR. Shelly said he has heard the fire recently jumped Manistee River Road as it moved north.


As of 4:25 p.m. DNR spokesperson Mary Detloff confirmed the fire had burned at least 1,000 acres and was moving northeast from its origin in the Howes Lake Road and Manistee River Road area.
Detloff indicated the DNR would have additional updates at approximately 5 p.m.
