Two new fires are blazing north of I-90 about 15 miles east of Drummond. A helicopter was dropping water on one fire Thursday afternoon, when the pilot noticed a second fire burning nearby.
The Department of Natural Resources and Conservation has multiple helicopters and planes working to put it out.
It's unknown at this time how big the fires are or how they started.
