Area: 15,981 acres (120% increase from yesterday)
Now August 30th containment is frightening. Isn't there planes and help around the US to help Northwest Montana Put these fires out. Today, the last I heard the TOWN of Seeley Lake was being evacuted, can you imagine, in the height of tourist season these businessed have to evacuate and remove their valuable, the reports say that SUNDAY afternoon, which now it is 3:36 pm that the fire was fastly moving toward the town and was 1.5 miles away.. my prayers are with them all. It does not Look Good.
The Star Meadows (brushcreek fire) is huge and no containment. i have heard of people who have lost livestock and not to mention the wild animals. How can they breath and the smoke is so thick how will they know which way to go. Some say fire is natural, I have to wonder what I can do to help. I told myself during Katrina that if I lived within an hour of those folks I would help and Here I sit at my computer and there is NOTHING I can do.
These Folks have lost grazing, lost cattle and their
way of life is changed forever.
WHEN ALL THIS IS OVER IN THE FALL
AND WE WILL LET YOU KNOW
