  • Available August 12 The Greenwood Fire: A year later

    The Greenwood Fire burned nearly 27,000 acres in northeastern Minnesota following a summer of heat, drought and smoky skies. It started on August 15, 2021, and led, in part, to the complete closure of the nearby Boundary Waters last summer. In addition, it destroyed more than a dozen buildings and led to the evacuation of hundreds of homes near Isabella and Highway 1 in Lake County. Just days before the one-year anniversary, WTIP’s Joe Friedrichs traveled back to the site of the Greenwood Fire to see what the forest looked like. Learn more in the next episode of the WTIP Outdoor News Podcast, available starting August 12.
