For three days, crews have battled a massive wildfire that has charred nearly nine thousand acres and is still not fully contained. 12 homes have been destroyed by the fire and nearly 40 outbuildings have been damaged. Some evacuees are being allowed back into areas to their homes. The bridge over the Manistee River on US-131 was closed for several months for reconstruction. Just last week, the bridge project was complete and was opened to traffic. But now, the construction cones are back up on US-131 and drivers are forced to wait as crews work on a different project.
