It’s the 75th anniversary of MDI Fire
MOUNT DESERT ISLAND, Maine (WABI) - 75 years ago, a brush fire broke out west of Hulls Cove.
It started on Oct. 17, but on the 21st, strong winds caused the fire to spread rapidly.
Nearly a month later, 17,000 acres on Mount Desert Island would be consumed by flames.
In 2017, Joy Hollowell took a look back at great fire of 1947.
