A home is on fire along Sutfin Road east of Comminsky Road in Highland Township, Wis., east of Solon Springs, Wis., late Tuesday, May 14, 2013. Crews from Wisconsin and Minnesota were trying to control a rapidly growing wildfire in northwestern Wisconsin that forced evacuations of the sparsely populated area. Several structures were destroyed in a mostly rural and wooded area east of Solon Springs as the forest fire grew to 9 square miles, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources said. No injuries had been reported.
