Applications are being accepted for an Aug. 14 hike that retraces the route that assistant Forest Service ranger Ed Pulaski and his crew took to find shelter in a mine shaft during the 1910 fires.

Forty-five volunteers are needed for the hike, which will be videotaped. The strenuous, seven-mile hike traverses terrain from above Lake Elsie down the Pulaski Tunnel Trail to Wallace.

The hike is sponsored by the 1910 Fire Commemoration Committee.
