Nevada Fire Threatens Planned Girls Camp
Las Vegas NV Sun 6Jun00 D1
By Mary Manning: Las Vegas Sun

PAHRUMP, NEVADA -- A wildfire in Nevada has threatened the annual girls camp held by the Red Rock LDS Stake.The 160 acre fire has been burning out-of-control since Sunday, and US Forest Service employees reported that the fire was only five percent contained.

The camp is still on, however, according to Red Rock Stake President Mark Albright. He says he has spoken with the US Forest Service about the situation. "We are in contact with officials from the U.S. Forest Service and fire department and as of yet have no plans to cancel the camp, But I sent out a fax to all of the bishops in our stake, asking them to compile a list of ready drivers to take the girls off of the mountain if evacuation is called for,"

More than 400 young women between the ages of 12 and 18 were scheduled to arrive at Camp Stimpson for the weeklong event.
