New fires in the Jocko and north of Condon

There are two large fires in the area as of this week.

The Crooks fire was discovered July 23 and is approximately six miles west of the DNRC border, south of the Jocko Road, and eight miles southeast of Arlee, Montana. As of press time it was 705 acres.

The Jocko Road is closed at the CSKT Reservation divide/ Montana DNRC border (adjacent to Seeley Lake Ranger District lands) due to increased fire activity from the Crooks fire.
