Farmers jump into action on Grassy Ridge fire

Colby Ward posted this photo from the Grassy Ridge fire to Facebook. “Been a wild 4 days,” he wrote on Facebook. Colby Ward and his brother MaCoy Ward are among about 15 farmers and ranchers who have received firefighting training as participants in the three-year-old Camas Creek Rural Fire Protection Association, which played a key role in protecting livestock and property from the 162-square-mile Grassy Ridge Fire.

When flames jumped Camas Creek and swept toward a farmhouse south of Dubois early Saturday, local ranchers Colby and MaCoy Ward carried a hose into the burning grassland to help save the structure.
