Increased Smoke on Thursday Evening, Aug. 8
Incident: Lodgepole Wildfire
The Lodgepole Fire actively burned Thursday in the Twin Creek and Bear Creek area on the west side of the fire. This part of the fire has been relatively quiet for the past few days but was pushed by thunderstorm winds this afternoon. Increased smoke will settle in low lying areas this evening, including the Salmon River valley. Motorists should use their headlights and exercise caution when driving in smoke.
