I work about 15 miles from the fire and the smoke has really been affecting the area. We're ready for this to be over but it could be a while. The beetle kill is very extensive in this area providing tons of fuel. I'm glad they are getting a grip on this one. Thanks to all the firefighters trying to get this beast under control!

So sad but you have to look at the bright side of things when they are so bad. There will be some awesome feed in the next few years and we will be hearing a lot of stories of big animals taken on all of these burned areas. Co. Included
