Contact: Scott Bressler, 218-283-6658
International Falls, MN - The Tooth Lake Fire in Voyageurs National Park remains at approximately 300 acres. The fire continues to burn in mixed pine and hardwood forest, two miles south of Namakan Lake and 1.5 miles east of Junction Bay. Recent rainfall and colder temperatures have stopped the spread of the fire and no additional spread is anticipated. However, the fire will continue to burn in the duff and heavy fuels through the remainder of the fall season. It will not be declared out until several inches of snow falls on the fire area.
