State dam inspectors are concerned that a 70-foot dam, on a list of high-hazard dams, might give way.

The dam is holding back a 4.5-acre lake at Seven Devils Resort Club.Foscoe Fire Chief Larry Campbell worries about a wall of water crashing down the hillside, carrying a load of boulders and trees. He said residents would have two minutes to evacuate and avoid the destruction.

``That dam's a danger to my community,' Campbell said.

``It was lousy when they built it, it was lousy when it was rebuilt, and it's lousy now,' he said.
