The Nation

August 29, 1985

Nearly 400 firefighters wearing flame-retardant shirts attacked a fire burning out of control over 1,000 acres of scenic wilderness in Washington state, but crews fighting a blaze in Idaho had to pull back. The Butte fire in the Salmon National Forest in east-central Idaho spread across an additional 1,000 acres. Fire bosses asked for more men and equipment to fight the fire, which was blown back to life over the weekend after being contained for nearly three weeks.
