Yelllowstone National Park Firefighter "Roughed Up" By Grizzly
The grizzly bear apparently couldn't get away from the "LeHardy Fire" in Yellowstone National Park fast enough. Unfortunately for the firefighter, he was in the way of the bear's path.
Details out of the park are sparse, but apparently the firefighter received minor injuries the other day when he was "roughed up" by the bear. No word on the bear's health, but apparently he made good on his efforts to leave the area.
As for the LeHardy Fire, it's burned across some 4,260 acres and is only 5 percent contained. Though the fire, which is burning in mature lodgepole pine and mixed spruce/fir forest, remains north of the Fishing Bridge area of the park, crews are taking no chances and have taken steps to protect facilities at Fishing Bridge from the fire if it swings further to the south.
