Forsyth Township Wildfire Contained

Fire crews were called out to a small brush fire that grew rapidly into a wildfire just before four this afternoon in Marquette County.

At this time, the blaze is contained. The fire was near M–35 and Airfield Road in Forsyth Township, south of Gwinn. An evacuation of this area was not necessary. About 5 acres burned in the fire.

A natural fire break has been placed around the fire. Tree tops are being cut down to avoid the fire from spreading from tree to tree.
