Fire Information

This is a collection of links to forest fire information applicable to the Flathead National Forest and Glacier National Park.

Flathead National Forest Fire Information - InciWeb:
This page on the InciWeb site is the official source for information about fires in the Flathead National Forest. Click on the name of the fire for additional information.

The Daily Inter Lake:
This has been the best local newspaper for fire news. Be sure to scan the entire article content. Although a story may appear to concentrate on a particular fire, it often includes information on other area fires as well.

The Flathead Beacon:
The Flathead Beacon covers fire news regularly. It's best to read all wildfire articles as most will discuss more than one local fire.

GeoMAC (Geospatial Multi-Agency Coordination Group):
This is a site maintained by the US National Interagency Fire Center that provides real-time forest and wildfire information. Perhaps the most useful part is an interactive map. Among other features, you can zoom into a specific area to locate active fires, their status and their extent.

Glacier National Park Web Cams:
These are live feeds from a number of web-connected video cameras located in the park.

National Fire News, Wildland Fire Update:
This is a central summary of all major fires nationwide, including "managed" burns. This data isn't usually quite as current as the locally produced reports.

National Park Service Fire News:
This is a series of links to reports on fires within the U.S. National Park System. For Glacier National Park specifically, there is sometimes additional information on their "Press Releases" page:

National Fire Maps:
A collection of links to a number of fire-related mapping resources.

National Interagency Fire Center:
A good general starting point for nationwide fire information.

Northwest Montana Restrictions and Closures:
This page, maintained by the Northern Rockies Coordinating Group, contains announcements of the latest restrictions and closures related to fire conditions in Northwest Montana.

Storm Prediction Center Fire Weather Forecasts:
This is the SPC's main fire weather outlook page. It also includes links to a wealth of additional information on severe weather activity and fire-related forecast products.
