The "big blow up" of forest fires finally came to an end in Idaho. A record
dry August fueled 1736 fires which burned three million acres destroying
six billion board feet of timber. The fires claimed the lives of 85
persons, 78 of which were fire fighters, and consumed the entire town of
Wallace. The smoke spread a third of the way around the world producing
some dark days in the U.S. and Canada. The forest fires prompted federal
fire protection laws. (David Ludlum)
Half a dozen cities in the Central Plains Region reported record high
temperatures for the date, including Pueblo CO with a reading of 102
degrees, and Goodland KS with a high of 104 degrees. Hill City KS reached
106 degrees. (The National Weather Summary)
Sheridan WY reported a record hot temperature reading of 100 degrees.
