Firewood in High Demand This Winter

Posted: Updated:

That, coupled with the added difficulty of harvesting in deep slushy snow and northern Michigan may be on the verge of a firewood shortage.

9&10 News' Eric Lloyd and photojournalist Jacob Johnson looked into the firewood situation and have more details.
