Barring new fire starts, this will be the final fire update for this season, because the five fires near us are 100% contained! 248 personnel are working fire operations out here, but Thompson’s Type II Incident Management Team breaks down fire camp tomorrow. A Type III organization will finish off the Lazier Creek 3 and Rogers Mountain fires. Kalispell and Libby DNRC units will assume responsibility for monitoring the other three smaller fires.
