Hailey City Council bans cedar-shingles

HAILEY, Idaho - The Hailey City Council has banned the use of cedar-shake shingles on rooftops.

The Idaho Mountain Express reports the new rule exceeds the Wildland Urban Interface Code by prohibiting cedar-shake shingles completely.

The 170 square mile Beaver Creek fire destroyed one home but threatened hundreds of others. That fire wasn't contained until early September.
