SUPERIOR (WKOW) -- Damage from Wisconsin's large wildfire is estimated at $1 million dollars.
The massive blaze last May consumed about 7,400 acres, destroyed 17 homes and forced dozens of people to evacuate.
The state Department of Natural Resources has billed the logging company that started the fire more than $600,000. The DNR announced shortly after the fire was contained that a logging crew's cutting machine sparked the blaze.
The DNR concluded the logging company, Rib Lake-based Ray Duerr Logging, didn't properly maintain its equipment.
