Elk Ridge Fire Contained
The Elk Ridge area backs up against the Early Ranch area of Salmon Creek. From her spot on the ridge, Nadia King, Salmon Creek resident, reported that she could see the Elk Creek Fire and it is contained. There are six fire engines on the site.
According to her, “The initial smoke must have come from the trailer–the trailer we heard was engulfed in flames…The smoke is mostly gone now.”
This blaze seems not to have been related to this weekend’s rash of lightning caused fires.
