The Beaver Creek Fire

The Beaver Creek Fire has burned over 90,000 acres of the Sawtooth National Forest. This is a view (from the top of Sun Valley Ski Area) of the land after the Castle Rock Fire, of 2007. The Beaver Creek Fire is burning up to and into the footprint of the old fire. As you can see, the fires here can jump around a lot, finding new “jackpots” of fuels, on the north-facing slopes. Some of the acres burned are grass and sagebrush, too. Yes, there ARE some VERY fancy homes in and around the town of Ketchum. Will this be the fire that burns down part of the community?
