Area Fires Bring In Smoke


Anyone glancing toward the Gila Wilderness this past week cannot help but to have seen the growing plumes of smoke, which in Sierra County is primarily associated with the Round Fire burning west of the Winston and Chloride communities. U.S. Forest Service officials are also monitoring the Teacher and Gravel fires, which are burning in the Reserve Ranger District further west, although the Gravel Fire is located near Sierra County along Turkey Creek.
