Hear Stories of Idaho's Big Burn Tonight


If last week’s lightning-induced summer wildfires had fear flickering in your eyes, local storyteller Ben Kemper will help extinguish your fire fright.

Tonight at the Garden City Library, Kemper will recount the tale of Idaho’s great fire of 1910—a blaze that makes those little grass fires seem positively puny in comparison. He will perform his piece, “History From the Ashes: Stories of Idaho’s Big Burn,” for free at 6:30 p.m.
