Smokejumper hurt during arrival at fire

WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont. – A smokejumper remained hospitalized Sunday after sustaining a hip injury parachuting into rugged backcountry on the Montana-Idaho border to battle the Two Top fire.

Fire spokeswoman Marianne Baumberger said the elite smokejumper was injured during the initial attack Friday on the fire that’s burning on the Continental Divide.

She said the smokejumper had to be flown out by helicopter and was in stable condition Sunday.

About 100 firefighters are on the ground battling the fire that’s about 6 miles from Yellowstone National Park, she said.
