Wildfires raging near Park Rapids zero percent contained
PARK RAPIDS, Minn. – As the Rev. Jim Neubauer stood outside St. John’s Lutheran Church here, he watched the billowing smoke of the nearby raging wildfires, looking for slight changes in color.
A Hubbard County sheriff’s deputy told him the shifting colors were a sign of devastation.
“He said, ‘The sad thing is when you see the smoke color change, it’s probably another house going up (in flames),’ ” Neubauer said. “You could see the smoke change every once in a while.”
