Fire officials are feeling pretty confident about the firelines around the northwest, north and northeast sides of the Chrandal Creek forest Fire on the Bitterroot National Forest.

There were numerous small fires cropping up on the western edge of the fire, but five hotshot crews, aided by water-dropping helicopters, kept those fires in a minimal spread. The fire has burned 2,500 acres as of Friday morning.

The crews have contained about 50 percent of the Chrandal Creek Fire, and are working on direct hand line consstruction on the west side of the fire and are laying hose and water pumps to suppress hot areas there. Officials are also completing structure protection plans for residences in the Alta area of Hughes Creek drainage.

Area closures are still in effect for the area, so if you’re planning a trip in the south end of the Bitterroot National Forest, get the latest information from the Forest Service.
