This information was received from Ryan Butler, Assistant Fire Management Officer-Operations for the Hungry Horse-Glacier View Ranger District. Note that the Coal Ridge Fire is still about 10 acres . . .
Yesterday was pretty uneventful on the Coal Ridge Fire. Cloud cover and high humidity kept fire behavior to smoldering of heavy fuels. Attached are some photos of our recon flight. As you can see in some of the photos north aspects are too wet to support fire. Ground crews will be out on the 317B rd again today and I will report back to you all if there is rain in the rain gauge. Once the T-storms and rain move out of the area, looks like Saturday, we will have a contingent back up on Coal ridge. As always, please feel free to reach out to me if you have question. Thank You.
