‘North Fork Fire’ reported at Glacier Rim river access

The Kalispell Interagency Dispatch Center logged a small (1/4 acre) wildfire at 8:45 this morning at the Glacier Rim river access area. The log entry indicates two helicopters and two engines were dispatched to deal with it. I saw no evidence of smoke and no equipment on-site when I passed through the area just after 9:00 am.

UPDATE: The fire is now listed at 1/10 acre with an engine on the scene.

Man dies in boating accident on North Fork

(UPDATED) According to the Daily Inter Lake, an 80-year-old Kalispell man drowned yesterday afternoon when his one-person pontoon boat flipped over on the North Fork near the Glacier Rim access point. A second individual, who was accompanying the victim in another one-man boat that also capsized, was discovered safe on shore about a half-mile upstream.
