Beaver Creek Fire, Idaho

The Beaver Creek Fire, for those of you who don't know, has just turned more westerly and has been burning down Greenhorn Gulch since late this afternoon. Greenhorn Gulch is about 6 miles south of Ketchum, Idaho. This fire is certainly threatening many homes and has hopefully not burned any yet. Evacuations are in effect for certain areas. I took the images below between 5:15 and 7:45 tonight. The images were taken from a few different locations not far from HWY 75.
