Pagami Creek fire
Forest fire experts with 30 years and more experience say they had never seen anything like the Pagami Creek fire before in Minnesota -- a fire so hot and fast it "vaporized" trees and soil as it moved 16 miles between about noon and 5 p.m. on that hot September day.

A public meeting to discuss the Pagami Creek Fire will be held at 7 p.m. today at the Schroeder Town Hall in Schroeder.

Speakers will include Mark Falk, Cook County sheriff; Patty Johnson, zone fire management officer; Steve Schug, U.S. Forest Service district recreation specialist; and Mike Aultman, incident management team commander.

Subjects to be discussed include pro-active preparations in Cook County, local fire conditions, restrictions and closures, and fire management preparations.
