Wildfires continue to burn in Glacier NP (US); one close to main park road

Despite a soaking rain that dropped up to half an inch of moisture across Northwest Montana from Sunday afternoon through Monday morning, the Howe Ridge Fire in Glacier National Park has burned to within 150 feet of Going-to-Sun Road.

According to information from the park, crews have maintained extensive sprinkler systems at the Upper McDonald Creek stockbridge, throughout the Avalanche developed area, at the Red Rocks overlook and at the Logan Creek patrol cabin, in case the fire spots across the road. In addition, an extensive sprinkler system was placed along the Upper McDonald Creek trails, with the goal of containing that edge of the fire before it reaches Going-to-the-Sun Road.
