Fires in Eastern Montana

There are areas as larger than the city of NY on fire. They have it only 20% contained at this point and the losses are huge. The whole state is a haze from the smoke, so if you have breathing problems check before coming.

Re: Fires in Eastern Montana

We are now burning on the Western end of Montana. So far we have lost 2 firemen to the fires, and the news is worried about statues.

British Columbia is having its worst wildfire season on record and one of them has now set the record for the largest one ever in BC (467,000 hectares).

Re: Fires in Eastern Montana

I heard about that over a month ago Nickel. It made me ill as I had just been through there in June and saw how beautiful that area is. I did not realize it was still burning. Oh well, we know about the paid protesters who want to tear down statues, but not real news.

Re: Fires in Eastern Montana

Sadly, they are. They figure it probably won't be until late fall until some of the are fully contained/out.

Re: Fires in Eastern Montana

And they are not trying to put it out. They only contain it and allow it to burn it's self out. If we still had logging where the dying trees were being pulled out, we would not have these fires. We did not have them in the 70's when I was a kid, EVER. They put fires out at that time and they had logging where the forests were kept healthy and it was thicker then than it is now.
