A fire burning near Gully, Minn., serves as an example of the region's unusual weather recently.

It also highlights the cooperative, collaborative effort among those who fight fires across Minnesota.

Members of the Bemidji Fire Department spent three days over the New Year's weekend providing aid to the state's Department of Natural Resources, which has been working to extinguish the fire since Dec. 26.
