Pine Creek Fire-retardant

(From eyewitness & NIFC reports) A wildfire exhibiting “extreme behavior” broke out in Paradise Valley, Montana about 2:00 pm Wednesday, forcing a hurried evacuation of the community of Pine Creek.  Flames were quickly reported shooting 30 or more feet above the trees.  While rumors ran rampant about the loss of businesses and homes, confirmation was received by late Wednesday evening that the church, Pine Creek Lodge and Café and the store had sustained some damage but remained standing.  However, five other structures, including a home that were reportedly lost to the fire.  Multiple agencies along with air support joined in the response to the fast-moving fire.  Officials quickly set up an evacuation center in Livingston for those routed from their homes.  The fire is currently estimated to involve 5,000 acres, and initial reports indicate the fire was likely human caused.

  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
