Twin Peaks Fire Burning In Northern Johnson County
Crews are battling a wildfire that started this past weekend in Northern Johnson County.
As of late Sunday, October 25th, the Twin Peaks Fire located between the city of Buffalo and the Johnson County-Sheridan County border line, has burned more than 40 acres of steep timbered terrain in the Big Horn Mountain foothills.
In a press release, Johnson County Emergency Management Coordinator Marilyn Connolly says the blaze started Saturday morning, October 24th and it has been determined that it was human caused.
No injuries have been reported and no structures are being threatened.
Several US Forest Service crews from Buffalo and Sheridan as well as the Johnson County fire district are battling the fire, but are having difficulty with the steep terrain.
Wildfire danger in that area is high due to dry grass and timber.
There's been no word yet on containment.
Water drops via helicopter were planned for Monday, October 26th.
