Aided by cooler temperatures and some rainfall, crews in northern Minnesota made significant progress in containing the Greenwood Fire.

The U.S. Forest Service-Superior National Forest said Tuesday that the state's largest wildfire was now 49% contained, up 12% from Monday.

The fire remained at about 40¾ square miles in size.

Officials continued working to contain the fire on Tuesday, with crews patrolling and mopping up hotspots along Highway 2 and along the fire's southern and eastern perimeter. Crews also cleaned up along Highway 1.
