1,600 acres burn south of Nimrod

The number was upped from a previous estimate of 1,400 acres, not because the fire had burned more ground since Monday but because of a more accurate reading of the data, according to Ron Sanow, fire information officer for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
