Beaver Creek Fire | August 2013

Near the towns of Hailey and Ketchum Idaho, this fire again threatened the Sun Valley ski area. I was working on a Type II engine and was witness to the extreme fire activity that took place in the Greenhorn subdivision. We were able to save every house but one, which is amazing considering the intensity of the fire. I was unable to take photographs of those times because I was actively engaged in firefighting. The one house that burned was at the junction of two drainages where fire converged and reportedly blew out the windows of the house.
