Mother Nature dealt Michigan another blow Thursday with a wildfire that prompted evacuations in northern Michigan.

According to Up North Live, the fire was reported near Grayling, in Crawford County, around 5 p.m. It spread across more than 120 acres before being contained about four hours later, with residents told they could return.

No injuries were reported, and only one outbuilding was damaged, officials told the website.

Authorities credited their quick response with helping the state avert another disaster.
