FINLAND, Minn. (AP) — Authorities fighting a northeastern Minnesota wildfire have ordered additional evacuations after the blaze jumped a highway.

The U.S. Forest Service sent in ground crews and water-dropping aircraft Friday after the Greenwood Fire crossed over to the west side of Lake County Highway 2, just north of Stony Lake. Deputies were evacuating residents from the Stony Lake and Sand Lake areas near where Highway 2 intersects with Minnesota Highway 1. It wasn’t immediately clear how many people were affected.

The area is dotted with seasonal cabins and some year-round residences. Earlier in the week, authorities evacuated around 90 residents from the McDougal Lake area.
