Roane Creek Fire

Posted in

A news release from the Bighorn National Forest states that a small lightning-caused fire is burning near Roane Creek in the Bighorn National Forest. The half-acre fire is burning in timber and grass about two and a half miles south of U.S. Highway 14A in the Pete’s Hole area.

Mobilized to the fire were a helicopter, a water tender, and Forest Service firefighters. The helicopter is being used to limit the spread of the fire while firefighters work to build a line around the fire. Fire managers ask the public to stay clear of the area to allow fire personnel to do their jobs safely.
