Local Departments Weigh in on Arizona Wildfires

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of miles from Arizona, fire departments in northern Michigan are reacting to the wildfires out west.

Similar to Arizona, Northern Michigan deals with wildfires every year that cause destruction and injuries.

The Huron-Manistee National Forest says when they're called to a fire they look at a number of factors including people, structures, topography, and weather before they go out.

According to Big Rapids Fire Dept., the weather plays a huge role in wildfires and can definitely make it harder to extinguish a fire.
