Photos of the Sheps Canyon fire near Hot Springs, SD

Today we took some photos at a new fire that started at about 2 p.m. in Sheps Canyon west of Angostura Reservoir about five miles south of Hot Springs, South Dakota. The Mt. Taylor Hot Shots from Baker New Mexico, surprisingly, showed up and put in some line and did some burning out. Two Single Engine Air Tankers worked the fire, reloading at Hot Springs. There was also a dozer on scene and an air attack ship with “Alaska” written on the bottom of a wing. When we left at around 5 p.m., the spread had been slowed considerably.
