Print Article

Two new fires were detected on the Flathead National Forest Monday, and both are being suppressed.

The Gorge Fire was less than an acre, burning about 10 miles northeast of Condon in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Another fire, located near Dry Lake on the Swan Lake Ranger District, hadn’t been named or sized up as of Monday afternoon.

Resources were being dispatched to both fires, which could be impacted by high winds that were forecast for Monday night.

The National Weather Service issued a red flag wind warning for much of Western Montana until midnight. Winds of up to 30 mph were expected to be associated with thunderstorms moving into the region.
