Fire in Park Rapids area burns structures, forces evacuations
As the Rev. Jim Neubauer stood outside St. John’s Lutheran Church here, he watched the raging wildfire billow smoke into the air, looking for slight changes in the smoke’s color.
A deputy told him the shifting colors were a sign of the fire’s damage.
“He said the sad thing is when you see the smoke color change, it’s probably another house (burning),” Neubauer said. “You could see the smoke change every once in a while.”
