Lowline fire
« on: July 27, 2023, 03:25:38 pm »

Well this isn't a post I wanted to make but here it is. The area we generally refer to as Mill Creek, where I've spent countless hours recreating and taking photos is on fire. It started yesterday from some dry lightning and is already close to 800 acres at mid day today with 0% containment.
There are some houses and ranches nearby and everyone is on a pre-evacuation order. Horses are being boarded at the fairgrounds near my house. 
I went to have a look yesterday evening and took some photos. We're hoping for the best and bracing for the worst.

Sorry to see this, it appears it's surrounded by some plains so the fire maybe won't spread that much?

PS. for whatever it's worth the first shot is great

Sad but breathtaking photos. Drama is at full play.
Let's hope that this fire will be under control quickly and that nobody will hurt or killed.

Sad, true, but well captured, esp. the first one.

Thanks everyone! It sounds like it has slowed a little and we got some rain last night with more on the way this weekend.
Hopefully it will run its course quickly and without too much damage.

Here's an elk herd escaping the blaze. Lots of calves in this group.
