On Monday, June 26, we had a lightning strike fire start on Ellison Creek near the ranch we manage. We would like to thank all the parties involved with the installation of the water bladder and dip tank that was placed right outside this property.
Thanks to the quick action of the Forest Service helicopters they were able to use the water quickly to stop this fire from getting out of control. This could have been a very bad situation as the fire was very close to private land and our only access road out.
On behalf of all the property owners and residents of the Ellison Creek area we thank you for your foresight to install this water bladder and dip tank. It really paid for itself already.
