Firefighters from Colorado hauling hose and fittings for a hose lay on the dozer line connecting the road to Morrell Falls (Forest Road 4353) to Rice Ridge Road (FR 720) along the northern edge of the Seeley Creek Trails.

SEELEY LAKE - As of Aug. 15, the Rice Ridge Fire continues to burn 1.4 miles northeast of Seeley Lake. It has grown 3,331 acres and remains 10 percent contained. Nearly 100 firefighters have been added to the efforts in the past week.

While the Rice Ridge Fire is still the number one priority in the Northern Rockies, the Northwest Area has taken the number one spot on the national priority list. No evacuation orders have been issued.
