Caribou and Gibralter Ridge Fire Relief

Caribou and Gibralter Ridge Fire Relief

9/6/2017 3:07:00 PM/Categories: General News, Wildfire

The Caribou and Gibralter Ridge fires have burnt over 20,000 acres in Northwestern Montana in Lincoln County. The fires were started in early August by lightning strikes and are both less than 30% contained. One of the biggest needs for those affected by the fire is hay and feed for livestock.

A full evacuation order is in effect for the West Kootenia area. A number of structures have been lost in the fire. The fire has extended across the border into Canada.

A public meeting will be held at the Eureka High School Auditorium on Wednesday September 6th, at 7:00 p.m.

A relief fund has been set up through the Eureka Area Chamber of Commerce. If you would like to donate checks can be mailed to them at PO Box 186, Eureka, MT 59917 or contact them at 406-297-4636.

Any other questions can be directed to the Town Hall at 406-297-2120.

The fire and drought assistance hotline can also be a resource for livestock owners. Call the hotline at 1-844-515-1571 or check their website http://agr.mt.gov/Fire-Drought-Assistance-2017.
