Fire No. 2 – Hwy. 93 South, Near Davis Creek

by jhwygirl

Only 9 days since the Mt. Sentinel fire.

It’s amazing how fast these things move. I had only driven by it about an hour before and I hadn’t seen a thing. Hopefully, the two old roads up there will serve as a break so that firefighters get this thing out by tonight. It was slightly windy, causing it to move up the hill.

Some pretty fancy helicopter work. These guys have to hate situations like this. Immediately adjacent to the highway with a steep hillside. Winds. It doesn’t even look easy.



I liked these two…the sun was just sinking behind the trees. I thought they looked neat.


The Lolo Volunteers got there pretty quick. The whole fire scene is pretty regimented – for good reason – Montana firefighters have an excellent safety record. These guys and gals (yep – there are female volunteers out there in Lolo, folks!) came ready in their nomex and were standing by waiting for their orders.
