Highway 200 Complex News Release

2017-10-2 Highway 200 Complex Update - Closures Lifted

Incident: Highway 200 Complex Wildfire
Released: 10/2/2017

Highway 200 Complex Closure Areas Rescinded

As a result of decreasing fire suppression activities, most of which have now concluded, the area multi-jurisdictional closures, including US Forest Service, Montana DNRC and private system roads and trails, surrounding and including the fire areas listed above, have been lifted as of Monday, Oct. 2 at 12:01 a.m. Although these recent fire areas are now open again to the public, forest visitors are advised to use great caution when travelling through as the trees that remain standing could have been weakened by fire and could fall down without warning. Burnt out roots and stump-holes could also pose a risk for walking through these areas. Otherwise, expect poor footing in all burned areas. Some limited rehabilitation operations could be continuing throughout the fall on any or all of the Highway 200 Complex fires listed. Questions regarding this notice should be directed towards the Plains/Thompson Falls Ranger District office (phone number 406-826-3821, 408 Clayton Street in Plains) or the Cabinet Ranger District office (phone number 406-827-3533, 2693 Highway 200 west of Trout Creek).
