No, it wasn't a helicopter crash

August 15, 2011

Crews battled steep terrain, gusty winds and heavy timber on the Rogers Mountain fire last Thursday on the Colville National Forest (CNF).
Localized thunderstorms created wind gusts and aggressive fire behavior Thursday afternoon on the fire line, pushing the Rogers Mountain fire to 90 acres.
“We know it was human caused,” said CNF spokesman Franklin Pemberton. “But the exact cause is still under investigation.”
Pemberton quelled rumors that the fire was caused by a helicopter crash last Tuesday.
