The George Lake Fire was detected on September 6th, 2022. It is burning on the bottom of the slope at the northeast end of George Lake, located in the Bob Marshall Wilderness on the Spotted Bear Ranger District. As of 9/15/2022, the fire is 684 acres; heavy wide-spread smoke across the area has affected the temperature and amount of solar radiation reaching the fire.
The Spotted Bear Ranger District will continue to monitor the fire with reconnaissance and Infrared (IR) Mapping flights as resources allow. Due to the rocky terrain and lack of available fuels, no other actions are planned at this time. A point protection strategy will be implemented to protect values at risk should conditions change.
An official closure order has been posted effective 9/9/2022. New information will be posted as it becomes available.
