2017-10-02 Lolo Peak Fire Update Suppression-Repair

Lolo Peak Fire Wildfire
News – 10/2/2017

Yesterday, the Incident Commander demobilized two pieces of heavy equipment, and kept the remaining two excavators working below the snow line on the Missoula side of the fire to continue repair work on Forest Roads 2160 and 4292.

Planned actions for today include completing repair work on Forest Roads 4292 and 2160, beginning repair work on Forest Road 2175. The intent is to work the equipment lower on the hill, check the snow levels, and hopefully move up on the Idaho/ Montana border for the rest of the week.
