The 748 acre Saddle Complex of forest fires in the Salmon-Challis and Bitterroot National Forests continues to spread in every direction, causing more closures in the area.
The fire, south of the Bitterroot Valley, crept onto Bitterroot National Forest land Sunday, and now a joint operation from both forests is managing the fire.
The Stud Fire (pictured) is not in the wilderness, but the steep terrain is causing a high safety risk. The Stud Fire is moving northest.
Horse Creek Hot Springs has been closed to the public, along with Horse Creek Road, Horse Creek Pass to Woods Creek Pass, Cayuse Point road and roads near Oreana Lookout.
Both fires are burning in an area that has not been impacted by fire in over 100 years, according to information officer Jesse Bender. KLYQ will update the fire information daily in our 7:30 Bitterroot Morning newscast, and of course, here on our website.
