The North Camas Fire was detected in the upper Camas Creek drainage high on the north ridge of Heavens Peak around 7:00 pm on Sunday, September 4. The fire was first detected from Swiftcurrent Lookout. The North Camas Fire is burning in very steep, inaccessible terrain and is estimated at 71 acres as of September 11th. The fire is creeping and smoldering, with isolated single tree torching. 

Glacier National Park fire managers are closely monitoring the fire. The location of the fire at a high elevation with sparse fuels is expected to limit the potential for fire spread.
