Fires on the Kootenai

Fires on the Kootenai

Updated: August 30, 2015

The IMT will have an information booth at the Lincoln County Fair, Aug 28-30.
Community Update Meeting Suday, Aug 30, 7:00pm at the Trego Civic Center.

As of Thursday, August 20, our area is under Stage 2 fire restrictions: go to MT Fish, Wildlife & Parks for specifics.

Weather conditions across the Pacific Northwest, very hot and dry, have created a situation that is resulting in a lot of fires here and across the northwest. July was the hottest month on Earth since records began, according to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The conditions are "unprecedented for the northern Rockies....we had half the precipitation normal for June and July this year. It's dry....leaves and plants are dying back and drying up like they normally do in the fall. This is providing fuel for fires," said Steve Munson, fire behavior analyst for the Northern Rockies Type II Incident Management Team (IMT) that has been assigned to the Northeast Kootenai Fire Complex.(Click on that for fire updates)
