The Missoulian recently reported a one-acre fire in Bonner near the old Stimson Lumber Mill. According to the article, “DNRC spokeswoman Cindy Super said a state helicopter had been dispatched to assist firefighters on the ground. She asked people to not stop along Highway 200 to watch the activity.”
The cause of the fire was not reported, but PLEASE be cautious with anything that could cause a spark while you’re out and about in the mountains, as the fire warning level in Missoula county is currently at “Very High”, while counties to the west are currently at “Extreme” fire danger levels.
