Shadow Lake Fire
Big Lake Youth Camp at this point has been saved from the forest fire that has been raging around it. The name of the fire is the Shadow Lake Fire. The fire was getting within a few hundred yards of the camp so the fire fighting team made the decision to back burn from the east and south edge of camp back into the main fire. It seems to have worked and kept the fire out of the campus itself.
