An airtanker makes a drop of fire retardant on a wildfire Wednesday evening as fire crews wait along Three Lakes Road, north of Island Lake off County Highway 4, or about 20 miles north of Duluth. Fire departments on the scene included Gnesen, Normanna, Rice Lake and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. At about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, officials on the scene said the fire had been contained and that crews would be working to mop up hotspots this morning.
