Until the wildfire becomes better contained, periods of smoke and reduced visibilities may be experienced over the next few days and filter into northern Adams and Juneau Counties.
The wildfire going in northeast Minnesota is known as the Pagami Creek Fire and has burned areas of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
