Riggins “Teepee” Fire

The winds picked up today to 30-40 mph and the “Teepee” fire near Riggins Idaho is burning about 25 miles south of us, we’re in White Bird. If I start to see flames later on today, I think we’re going to have to leave. We’re suppose to get some rain tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

    • We did get some rain about 2 hours later. The sheriff came by, said to pack up and get ready to evac. Luckily, the fire calmed down one the winds died. Still, we were a bit nervous.
