Update On West Riverside Fire

c/o Eric Seitz

Firefighters say the threat to nearby homes has been reduced from a 2,000 acre wildfire east of Missoula.

Crews were putting out hot spots and patrolling the area near the 40 threatened homes in West Riverside, near the confluence of the Blackfoot and Clark Fork rivers.

No evacuations have been ordered and no structures have been damaged. Incident commander Ken Parks says the imminent threat to the homes has been greatly diminished. The West Riverside blaze is one of more than 10 active wildfires in the state.Two of the largest fires are burning in the Flathead National Forest. Both are in remote areas, and fire officials closed trails and set up protection measures for a cabin and two bridges.

Another wildfire in northeastern Idaho spread to over 18,000 acres and crossed the Montana line into Ravalli County.
