Peggy Fire Final Update 7/29

Ignitions are complete on the Peggy fire for a total of 886 acres.

We had hot and dry conditions in the morning and early afternoon. This allowed us to finish bringing fire down into deer creek drainage and also strip out the remainder of the interior green pockets.

Peggy fire update

Hello everyone,

Bear safety

bears

Good morning,
So, the bears are still around, and game and fish will not relocate for now.
It was suggested that a mixture of ammonia and water 50/50 will keep bears away from your deck. Please be careful!

bear sightings

There have been multiple sightings of a male bear and sow with 2 cubs. Several people are concerned with the shooting going on in the neighborhood. Other than personal safety, DO NOT SHOOT in our neighborhood. It is UNLAWFUL to discharge a firearm within 150 yards of a home or road, and incredibly dangerous in close quarters of other homes. Not to mention a wounded bear is a dangerous bear. I have attached a helpful document on "keeping bears alive, and you safe". It has several numbers for Game and Fish. I am notifying them about our neighborhood situation.
