Forest fire smoke in the Bitterroot Valley is not coming from any fires on the Bitterroot National Forest. Instead, the forests southeast of Boise are full of fire and winds have brought heavy smoke into our area.

On the Boise National Forest, 12 miles northeast of Mountain Home, Idaho, the Pony Complex (see photo) is the largest at 119,343 acres as of Monday morning. It started last week, about the same time as the Elk Complex, which is is now 90,249 acres, due east of the Pony blaze.

A bit farther east, on the Twin Falls Ranger District are the two major fires of the Beaver Creek Complex, which is now 24,000 acres.

Meanwhile, the Gold Pan Complex on the Bitterroot National Forest West Fork Ranger District is over 17,000 acres and is beginning to burn more actively as the forest dries following Friday’s storm.
