Wildfire Reported on Gaskin Lake

BWCA - It is believed that the fire started Monday, June 13 in the evening. It is located  on the peninsula near the western end of Gaskin. There is a campsite on the south side of this peninsula.   South Easterly wind of up to 15 mph have resulted in some "spotting" on the north westerly shoreline. From what I am hearing the fire has burnt about three acres. Currently the USFS is only monitoring the fire. The fire is locate 3 miles south and a bit west of the westend of  Poplar Lake and just north of Winchell. For addition information go to  WTIP radio.
