Missoula County has once again reached the highest fire danger level possible with a new “extreme” fire danger declaration by the Missoula County Fire Protection Association.MCFPA spokesman Chris Jonson says that the reason for the fire danger are pretty obvious.

“As any Missoulian can see by looking out over the southwest horizon,many of those fires started by recent lightning storms have escaped initial attack,” Johnson said. “That is due to increased fire danger and dryer and windier conditions. As a result, Missoula has increased its fire danger level to extreme.”

The Lolo National Forest is currently fighting at least three small to mid range fires not counting the School House fire being handled by the DNRC.

Johnson says the West Fork Two Fire which is burning not far from the School House Fire grew to sixty acres between Sunday and Monday. That fire will likely be put into a fire complex along with the School House Fire and both will be managed by a new incident management team.
