A memorial was installed in the Idaho Panhandle on Sundance Mountain on Aug. 5 to commemorate the casualties of the 1967 Sundance forest fire. Four generations of descendants of Lee Collins traveled to the site, which marks the spot where the fire started. Collins was the bulldozer operator who died in the Sundance firestorm on September 1, 1967. The new memorial was placed July 26th by volunteers from the Fire Lookout Museum, Priest Lake Museum and joined by lookouts from Gisborne, Lookout, Sundance, and Hughes Ridge.
