Yesterday’s Daily Inter Lake had a good summary of fire activity in the Flathead National Forest, including the lightning-caused Ninko Creek fire just north of Whale Creek . . .
The Flathead National Forest has three wildfires on its hands, along with several prescribed fire projects.
Lightning that moved through the area earlier this week triggered the Ninko Creek Fire in the North Fork Flathead drainage and the Ashley Divide fire just west of Kalispell.
