On top of Mt. Ireland is one of the last active USFS fire lookouts. In the foreground is part of the 10,000-acre Sloan Ridge Fire of about 12 years ago. The fire is the result of a controlled burn that got out of control when strong winds too charge. An investigation determined that errors were made evaluating weather conditions.
