2019 Fire Activity Update Information

Postby PeteE » Wed Jul 31, 2019 12:30 pm

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.
https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/?state=27

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