Photos: Boy Scouts build a flame for recovery

Lance Townsend, 17, digs a trench for a natural gas line as part of his Eagle Scout project Friday at the Animas Alano Club in Durango. Lance’s project for Troop 501 is to build a fire pit for 12-step programs, so meetings can be held more comfortably outside. The two-day project is a culmination of his Eagle Scout endeavor, which includes a proposal and approval of the project plan, then reporting on the project’s completion. Lance is the son of Tom and Marian Townsend.
