Cody in Park County, Wyoming — The American West (Mountains)
Yellowstone Fire Fighters
We the citizens of the Yellowstone gateway communities whose lives and properties were imperiled by the 1988 Yellowstone fires, hereby express our gratitude to those whose courage, skill and devotion tamed the inferno that devastated over 363,000 acres. Our abiding thanks to the firefighters and communities (including Edward Hutton of Casper, WY who gave his life fighting the fires). Their extraordinary effort and fortitude averted catastrophe.
We will never forget
