Incident: Moose Meadow Wildfire
Due to the ‘Red Flag’ conditions that we are experiencing across western Montana, the Moose Meadows fire has grown substantially in a northeasterly direction from Whetstone Lake. The fire’s growth towards the Middle Fork Road and Kaiser Lake has prompted the sheriff’s office to issue an evacuation of the residents on the Middle Fork Road south of the junction of Road 5130. The evacuation proceeded in an orderly fashion, and was completed by Sunday afternoon. A shelter for displaced people has been set up at the Philipsburg High School. For more information on emergency services please call the Department of Emergency Services at 406-560-1462.
