Some Pagami Creek firefighters heading home; all fire restrictions lifted

Email

The number of wildland firefighters battling the Pagami Creek forest fire in the Superior National Forest is heading down as crews and cooler, damper weather have knocked the fire down.

There are now about 660 firefighters on the job, after more than 830 were at the fire during the peak effort last week. Some crews from across the U.S. are now heading home as their two-week stint comes to an end, and no new firefighters are being called in, fire officials said Thursday.
