The Flagstaff Road fire [actually on Bison Drive] started at approximately
the boundary of our property with the Boulder Mountain Parks. It was a
lightening strike and the small fire was observed almost immediately by my
neighbor John Kineman who alerted me. I started taking photographs about an hour
after the fire stated as I got immediately busy putting ladders up each wall,
all furniture in the center of the room and all valuables in the entrance hall
ready to pack [Clare came back 40 minutes later and we loaded the Land Cruiser
and attached the trailer.
Thanks to our Fire Chief, numerous firemen from many parts of the USA and air drops of fire retardant and water, only about 250 acres were burned. The view from our house in not bad as most of the fire was contained in the valley between South Boulder Mountain and Bear Mountain.
