The Lolo complex of fires is now 60 percent contained, according to Information Officer Tom Kempton. The public can hear the latest on the fire fighting at a meeting Tuesday, August 27, at 7 p.m. at the Lolo Elementary School.

Officials said the area received very little rain from the past storms, and the hot, dry weather pattern is continuing. The north side of the fire remains active in the Woodman Creek basin, with the BPA powerline threatened, a mile south of Blue Mountain. The Blue Mountain lookout tower has been wrapped (see photo) and the University of Montana Blue Mountain Observatory is also threatened. Vegetation around the observatory is being removed.

All national forest campgrounds are closed along Highway 12 between Lolo and Lolo Pass, but the road is open, with a 45 mph speed limit from milepost 20 to milepost 32.
