Tahquamenon Falls State Park reopens after wildfire
A popular state park is reopening near a wildfire that's been burning across more than 30 square miles of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
A Department of Natural Resources spokesman says Upper Falls and related facilities in Tahquamenon Falls State Park have reopened, and the Lower Falls campground is expected to reopen at noon today. The well-known destination for campers was originally closed because of smoke and ash problems. The DNR spokesman says those conditions have cleared up in the park.
The DNR says the blaze known as the Duck Lake Fire began with a lightning strike last week and burned about 34 square miles.
