Incident Overview

Inciweb information was updated: 11 months ago

On August 1, the Rocky Mountain Ranger District trail crew reported a fire near Sidney Creek approximately 7-8 miles south of Highway 2 and 2.5 miles west from the Badger Cabin admin site. The fire is located in Pondera County. Two fire footprints near the fire from 2007 and 2017 provide opportunities for fire management since fuels in these footprints are less dense and suppression actions are most likely to be effective.
