Fire in Glacier National Park 67 Percent Contained
The Reynolds Creek Fire in Glacier National Park is 67 percent contained, the Associated Press reports, but certain weather conditions this week aren't looking to decrease the flames with upcoming warm temperatures and low humidity.
The Glacier park fire burned into the rocks in Rose Creek and Two Dog drainage north of the fire's northern perimeter on Sunday, reports showed. AP said those areas were allowed to burn "to reduce the amount of fuel that could compromise the established fire line to the east."
Fire managers are hoping a future cold front that is expected to move into the area on Monday night should bring light rain but also wind gusts, which may not be as beneficial in helping with containment.
AP reports the Going-to-the-Sun Road from St. Mary to Logan Pass remains closed.
