Air Support, Hundreds of Personnel Battle Lolo Fires

Posted: Updated:
LOLO CREEK -

The Lolo Creek Complex wildfire expanded to 8,600 acres across difficult terrain, as more personnel and heavy equipment arrived on the scene Wednesday.

Fire officials said the lightning-caused fire burning west of Lolo made a run last night, but activity was quiet overnight.

They said strong, shifting winds remain a big concern for the more than 300 fire personnel on the ground and in the air.

Fire officials said eight helicopters and a mobile fire retardant station are also on the Lolo Creek Complex.

Residents in the Bear, Sleeman and Mill Creek areas along Highway 12 are under evacuation notice, and the highway remains closed from Fish Creek to the Highway 93 Junction.

A public information meeting will take place at 8 p.m. in the Lolo Elementary School lower gym.

Sheriff's officials advise the public to call 258-4636 for more information.

    KHQ.COM - Mid August is about the time that we start to see spiders come into our homes, particularly the hobo spider. August and September is mating season for the hobo and that means you may be seeing more funnel-like webs in and around your home. Males are on a mission to find a female which is why they are a lot more active at this time.
