MARQUETTE COUNTY, Mich. (WLUC) - Sands Township reports that Silver Creek Road between Sicotte subdivision and M-553 is open after a road closure early Monday evening.

However, the Harvey DNR Office says high winds continue to be a problem. Crews report a high number of brush fires across the UP.

The majority of the fires have been caused by wind-downed power lines.

The Harvey DNR says the largest fire reported Monday was a 15.9-acre brush fire near the Arnold area in Marquette County.
