Michigan Forest Fire Forces Evacuation
A forest fire in Grayling Township, Michigan, was apparently caused by a campfire on Saturday. According to ABC News, the fire had burned down more than three square miles of forest or three-thousand-six-hundred acres of land.
Although the campfire did start the fire, the reason it spread so quickly was because of how dry the surrounding area was. Michigan has been experiencing some of its hottest temperatures of the year so far so that also contributed to it.
There were emergency evacuations all over Grayling Township, Michigan. However, those people who evacuated have now returned to their homes.
According to Michigan Officials, the people can expect to see more forest fires in Michigan since the weather is getting hotter every day.
