South Canyon Fire on Storm King mountain....July 6, 1994


The Storm King blaze, which occurred July 6, 1994, killed 14 firefighters near Glenwood Springs. The wildland firefighters lost their lives when winds shifted, resulting in a "blow-up" fire condition that trapped them on the uphill and downwind position from a fire on Storm King Mountain. The fourteen firefighters included smokejumpers Don Mackey, Roger Roth, and James Thrash; Prineville Hot Shots John Kelso, Kathi Beck, Scott Blecha, Levi Brinkley, Bonnie Holtby, Rob Johnson, Tami Bickett, Doug Dunbar, and Terri Hagen; and helitack crew members Richard Tyler and Robert Browning.
