A 2,000-acre lightening fire in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, near
Choteau, is prompting the Forest Service to reroute hikers and campers
on the well-traveled Continental Divide National Scenic Trail.
A red flag warning has been issued for the area surrounding the fire,
named the Fool Creek fire, in the northern part of the Bob Marshall
Wilderness. Near the North Fork Sun River Drainage, it's expected to
grow with high temperatures and gusty winds in the forecast.
Thursday, the fire jumped from 50 acres to about 2,000 in the matter
of less than nine hours.
