This brings to 19 the number of fires controlled on the district this year. The fires, all sta ed by light. ~ing, burned less than 4 of an acre. On Saturday, fires were con- trolled on the Bushnell ranch and at Rocky Ford while fires at Dry Lake and Lytle Creek were controlled Sunday. Forest Sorv. ice crews mopped up with local ranchers assisting on two of the fires. On June 13, Forest Service crews from Sundance and New. castle suppressed a blaze near Halns Spring in the Lost Canyon area.
