The Chrandal Creek forest fire is 60 percent contained with containment expected around August 3rd.

The good news is that the north, east and south sides of the fire are largely contained. The afternoon cloud cover Saturday helped firefighters in line construction.

The Sunday update reported the blaze moved slowly across the slope and backed downslope on the west side of the fire, where crews are working on a direct line construction and hose lays.

Structures in the upper Hughes Creek area are no longer in the “threatened” category, according to officials, and crews are removing equipment from around the 37 buildings that had been in the danger zone earlier. However, the Stage 1 Evacuation Alert still remains in place by the Ravalli County Sheriff’s Office.

The fire is active again Sunday in the area between Skook Creek and Chrandal Creek. Fire danger is rated Very High in the Darby Ranger District of the Bitterroot National Forest.
