Kelsey Fire Area Closure

Kelsey Fire Wildfire
Closures – 9/19/2017

Firefighting efforts to date have held the Kelsey Fire to just over 500 acres. The extended rain in the forecast will help suppression objectives, but is unlikely to be enough to put the fire out. For firefighter and public safety, an area closure is now in place. The area will cover north of the railroad line near Highway 58 to Forest Service road 24 (these roads are not included in the closure.) While there is only one recreation feature impacted, the Bunchgrass Trail, it is a popular location for hunter.
