The fire started early Wednesday afternoon near Highway 412 south of Alpena, forcing some evacuations.
The Carroll County News reports the fire was mostly contained before 10 o'clock Wednesday night, but not fully out.
Water tanker airplanes were called in to help drop water on the fire, joining several fire departments that were working on the ground to get the fire out, emergency management officials said.
No injuries were reported.
The cause is under investigation.
