Yowza! Ketchum's On Fire!


Must...resist...temptation to make snarky resort-town comments ("Will they douse the flames with chardonnay?")

Okay, we blew that. Onward with news. This thing is serious.

Ketchum is on fire. Or, at least, the surrounding hillsides. The Castle Rock Fire was at about 7,000 acres early this morning and weather conditions don't bode well.

The Idaho Mountain Express is keeping you updated on the stats.

The local blog Sun Valley Online has the pretty pictures. Sunsets: so much nicer with pollution.

Already trails in Adams Gulch have been overrun.
