A Fortnight of Flames: A Rice Ridge Fire Timeline

SEELEY LAKE - "My thinking is that the next big event will be east of Seeley," wrote retired Plum Creek Forester Roger Marshall in an interview July 6, 2017 about the 2007 Jocko Lakes Fire. "Auggie Creek to Cottonwood Lakes and all that area back to Pyramid has some real potential to make a large fire quickly. If the wind is just right, a serious run into Seeley could be possible, maybe devastating."

Marshall's comments were made 18 days prior to the start of the Rice Ridge Fire. As of press time the fire burned 8,209 acres and thus far has resulted in evacuation warnings for 600 homes.
