2019 Fire Activity Update Information

Post by PeteE »

Looked pretty hazy this morning looking towards the south here in the valley.
Apgar webcam looks the same.
Webcams on East side look OK.

I read where there is a wildfire down near Ronan...about 5000 acres.
Can't find info on it though.
Anyone know anything about fires nearby?

The Pit Fire just north of Libby started a few days ago. It is small and contained now, but there was smoke between the Salish and Whitefish Ranges west/NW of Whitefish the other day.

The fire down near Ronan is pretty much wrapped up as well.

This link to inciweb brings up a map. Slide the map to show Montana and click on the fire symbols for current information on the fires.

Small fires like the Pit fire may be suppressed using only local resources so they may not show up on the Inciweb site.
