Incident: Lolo Creek Complex Wildfire
The Lolo Creek Complex is now contained. If fire conditions change future updates will be posted. Smoke and visible flame may occur within the fire perimeter for the remainder of the fire season as pockets of unburned fuel ignite. The majority of the fire area is on private land (USFS 1 957; PVT 8 945) however some closures remain in place for trails on the Lolo National Forest. Blue Mountain Road #365 is closed at the 1 mile gate. The motorcycle trails at Blue Mountain will remain closed until the area is safe and fire rehabilitation work is completed which could be several weeks. Fire operations such as mop-up and patrolling remain on-going in this area.
Sept. 10 2013 Revised Area Closure: A revised closure is now in place opening up the majority of the Blue Mountain area. Areas of the fire perimeter and some roads on Forest Service land remain closed. Please see the closure map on this Inciweb page for details.
