Glacier National Park and Flathead County Sheriff’s Office issued an evacuation warning Wednesday for Apgar Village and sections of West Glacier.
The warning went into effect at noon following the recommendations of the Sprague Fire Incident Command Team, said a Glacier National Park news release.
“An Evacuation Warning is issued when current or projected threats from hazards associated with the Sprague Fire are severe enough to indicate a good probability of the need to evacuate. A warning is equivalent to the “Set” in the Ready, Set, Go notification system,” the release said.
The Sprague Fire is located about 9 miles northeast of West Glacier and has burned nearly 15,000 acres. As of Wednesday morning the blaze stood at about 60 percent containment.
Most areas of the park remain open but some trails and backcountry campgrounds are closed due to fire activity. Check backcountry://www.nps.gov/glac/planyourvisit/conditions.htm for more information on closures.
Congratulations, Mark O’Day!
