ONE MORE DEAD REPORTED
ON COEUR D'ALENE FOREST
One More Victim According
to Report Made to Missoula
Missoula, Sept. 2 – One more
body was found in the burned timber near Avery, Idaho, this week, according to a
telegram from Ranger Debitt, received here by Forester Greeley at noon. From
papers the man was identified as Larry Labar of the Setser creek fire fighting
crew. His address is unknown.
Forester Greeley received reports direct from both the Kootenai and Nez Perce forests today. Supervisor Skeels of the Kootenai at Libby, states that while they had no rain, the fires are all under control and are entirely confined to the districts which were swept over during the high winds, the timber which then caught on fire still burning. The rain in the Nez Perce forest has practically extinguished the fires.
