The Badger Fire is officially out and it scorched over 90 thousand acres in the South Hills. The area still has some closures but I was fortunate enough to be able to go in and look at some of the damage, and clean up efforts
After nearly a month of burning in the South Hills the Badger Fire is now 100 percent contained. According to fire officials, the fire had minimal activity during the weekend and cooler wet weather moved in to the area.
Hunting season has begun for some tags and are about to start for others. The Badger Fire is in Unit 54 and is burning thousands of acres of land. Closures remain in effect and those closures still apply to hunters.
