Sos related story. All chamber members and in- terested people arc encouraged to attend. commissioners invoke partial fire closure Reynard Mills work to control fire hotspots after the weekend fire on the Mills' Sunny Divide property. By: Evonna SchelKng While we're enjoying these unseasonably warm tempera- tures, the lack of moisture is cause for concern. As a result of the dry conditions, the Crook County Commissioners re- cently issued a partial fire closure until further notice. According to the notice, "discharge of fireworks and all outdoor fees are prohibited in unimproved areas." In reference to the present volatile conditions, Dave Piepcr of the National Forest Service said his agency is taking extra precautions, eWe're stopped all prescribed bums for the time being," he said, adding that theyhre been patrolling, the area to make contact with campers and hunters. County Road and Bridge Superintendent Elvin Rush said that a weekend fn'e on Reynard Mills' Sunny Divide property was most likely caused by hunters. The county's official report was filed with an 'unknown origin' status, but given the fire's location it is assumed it may have been caused by hunters in the area. Due to the timely arrival of Sundance, Moorcroft, Hulett, and Devils Tower fn'e crews, the Mills fire was contained to about three timbered acres. Alice Mills said, =As dry as it is, the fn'c could easily have been a lot worse. We're thankful for the quick response of those fire units." Other fires reported around the county have, so far, been fairly minor, been fortunate, so far," Rush noted. Despite the above-average accumulation of moisture re- ceived earlier this year, Crook County is extremely dry. Peggy Symonds, the local official wcatherpcrson, has noted that no precipitation has fallen since October 2. Opening the door to reveal a locker fiUccl with wild game carcasses, C&A Meats' Craig Hcmmah said the heat is af- fecting his business: "it's been hectic." With more hunters bringing in their "critters" to be pre- pared for the ride home, Hemmah said it's good that they're "using a little bit more common sense." And, as we enjoy these last vestiges of sunshine and warmth, it's not only the hunters who need to be exercising common sense. In the words of EI,An Rush, "Since it's so dry, everyone needs to be careful with fire...period." See page 11:
