Fire In Salmon Creek
Smoke from fire near the top of Salmon Creek
A lightning strike this morning started a small fire just below the ridge at Twin Ponds. Spotted by local resident David Booth, the bolt had ignited a small knoll. Fire crews already stretched thin by outbreaks in other areas left the flames to our local fire department. Salmon Creek volunteers quickly responded and by 9 the smoldering remains were being mopped up.
