Multiple Fires Burning In The Flathead

Posted: Updated:

Multiple fires are burning in northwestern Montana Sunday evening. The first fire is being called the Lazier Creek Fire and it is burning south of U.S. Highway 2 and Middle Thompson Lake. It grew from 40 acres to more than 400 acres Sunday afternoon and is actively being fueled by dry brush and timber. We're told pre-evacuation orders have been given to residents of Bend Ranger Station. Another fire is also burning in the area, known as the Rogers Fire. The blaze has burned more than 50 acres by this evening. Residents in the Whispering Pines neighborhood near Happy's Inn have been given pre-evacuation orders. We will continue to update as more information becomes available.
