Nest-caused fireMay 25, 2016 Photo by Steve Peck
No one was injured and no structures were damaged in a four-acre grass fire that was reported at about 11:30 a.m. Monday in the 400 block of Rendezvous Road. Officials believe the blaze was started by an osprey nest on a power line. Muddy, rutted roads caused trouble for crews responding to the incident. Fire officials said a couple of trucks got stuck in the mud, so Fremont County was called to provide reinforcements, along with the Bureau of Indian Affairs forest division from Fort Washakie.
