Inversion & Smoke Slow Fire Growth

North Buffalo 08-31

The North Buffalo Fire, north of Buffalo Valley near Moran, continued to progress in the Soda Fork and North Buffalo Fork drainages yesterday, but not as quickly as over recent days.  That decrease in fire activity was due to an inversion that remained in place for most of the morning, and significant cloud cover over the fire area.  Firefighters continue their work to secure the southwestern flank with hand  line and aircraft in order to assure it does not back into populated areas.  Currently, the fire is estimated to involve 13,727 acres.  Further north, smoke caused poor visibility forcing Yellowstone National Park to close the road between Norris Junction and Canyon.  With an increase in fire activity, the Cygnet Fire is now estimated to involve 1700 acres.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
