As of Wed. 7/10/2013 the Bison fire has burned a little over 25,000 acres & is 65% contained according to one local news channel, and as you know the media never really agrees on the facts. This may be accurate, but I use this as a general idea of burn area. One thing for sure this fire has set a record for being the largest in the region, ever.
Here’s a link if you want to read more. There are some videos and a gallery from some of the residents in the area. . .nice stuff.

The fact that it has been hot as hell for about a month now doesn’t help matters.
