Workers fixing listing Heart Mountain smokestack

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

 POWELL, Wyo. (AP) -- Workers are fixing the smokestack at the former Heart
Mountain Internment Camp.
   The Powell Tribune reported Tuesday that brickwork joints will be remortared
 and a concrete liner installed within the next month. The 75-foot red brick tower
  will also be cleaned.
   The tower is listing sharply to the east, the direction of the area's prevailing
 winds. The repairs won't fix that but Heart Mountain Foundation executive
director Stevan Leger said the concrete and steel rods being installed will make
it more "seismically stable."
   The work is being done by Stone Craftsmanship of Missoula, Mont.
