Overnight and into the morning of 7/7/21, a thunderstorm system moved through the Idaho panhandle and the region with lots of lightning and very little precipitation. Due to record drought conditions and unseasonably high temperatures, the forest saw an unusually high number of lightning-caused wildfires.
The Graham Ridge fire is located north of Kellogg, Idaho. This fire is on Idaho Department of Lands ground and protection. Values at risk include private inholdings, state timber, and National Forest System lands. Current operations include fireline construction, hose lay, and mop up.
Please Refrain from Recreating on the following trails: Graham Ridge Trail #17, Coal Creek Trail #41, Graham Creek Trail #33. In addition, please avoid unnecessary travel on the Bear Creek and 8-mile roads to provide safe access of fire fighter resources. As more information becomes available, updates will be posted on InciWeb.
