Sunrise Fire News Release

Hazards of Entering Burned Areas

Incident: Sunrise Fire Wildfire
Released: 9/17/2017

The Lolo National Forest has experienced a busy fire season this summer. Some areas of the Forest contain burned areas of over several thousand acres. The Sunrise and Burdette Fires on the Superior Ranger District burned over 26,000 acres and the Lolo Peak Fire on the Missoula Ranger District burned 52,745 acres of National Forest land. However, all the fires burned with mixed severity, meaning that there are unburned areas within the fire perimeters. Burned areas present unique hazards to campers, hikers and hunters – and especially those who may remain in these areas for extended periods.
