A tent compound is erected at the site of Grand Forks, Idaho, which was a bustling logging town that burned to the ground in an August 1910 forest fire that swept through Shoshone County. This photo shows a view of Grand Forks looking south two weeks after the town burned down. The Milwaukee Railroad grade is visible in the background. The surrounding forest is charred and buildings are in ruins. Courtesy of the US Forest Service
