Increased fire activity due to recent storms - Please remain vigilant

Recent storms have caused an uptick in initial attack and suppression operations on the Lolo National Forest and Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation protection areas. Since July 1, firefighters have responded to several lightning wildfires and at least one human-caused wildfire within the Lolo National Forest and DNRC protection areas. While activity has increased, fuels are still fairly ‘green’ and holding moisture enabling firefighters to quickly catch, contain and control these small incidents. The majority of these wildfires have been less than three acres in size.
