The Indian Ridge Fire started by lightning on July 7th in the Indian Creek drainage in Idaho’s Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. It is burning five miles from the Idaho/Montana border and is approximately 30 miles southwest of Darby, MT.
The fire is burning in very steep, rugged, and remote terrain with heavy surface fuels and dead standing timber making access for firefighters difficult and dangerous.
Fire managers are utilizing a point protection strategy to prevent any critical wilderness infrastructure from being negatively impacted by the fire.
