Mountain Fire
Start Date: August 16, 2011
Report Time: 1402
Forward rate of spread stopped: 1423
Location: State Route 38 / Mountain Home Village
Size: ¼ to ½ acre
Resources: 4 engines, 1 Crew, 1 Helicopter, 1 Water Tender
Total Personnel : 50
Cause: Under Investigation

Passing motorists reported a fire on the south side of State Highway 38 just after 2:00pm on Wednesday August 16, 2011 prompting a full wildland response from the United States Forest Service and local agencies.

Firefighters aggressively fought the fire, stopping it before it could spread into the adjacent Mountain Home Village neighborhood which surrounded the fire on three sides south of the highway. The swift action kept fire officials from closing the highway, or evacuating nearby residents.

Heaps Peak Helitack Helicopter 534 circled overhead and checked along the highway for additional spot fires as a precautionary tactic.

Fire Investigators have not released a cause of the fire.

I agree with Benny that the main point is that the area is posted closed and people are in violation, but I agree with Mountainarts observations and believe the Eagles are more adaptive than we think. I have been here since 1961 and am not concerned.

To BootsnBridles, I was only referencing what everybody who lives around Flathead Lake in Montana grows up knowing. Eagles basically are crows with fancy dress, Google all the videos of them mobbing townsfolk, or stealing groceries off people leaving the market.
Nothing negative, or positive that I am asserting, they are just what they are, no biggie.

I was only commenting on the eagles, and how they are scavenger birds, which mentally have no fear of human activity.

Snowplay folks, and trespassing I was not referencing. That is a whole huge probl3m up here, with trash, no respect and outright hostility to homeowners as they blqtantly trespass qnd trash your porperty, while they look at you telling them to move on.....

Yeah that's all fine and dandy, but closed means closed. It's not just the eagle habitat which is a no brainer, but it's everywhere. All coming up to play in the snow and park anywhere there's a half spot. I get it, but show a smidgeon of respect!

Doo, there are two gates, one locked, a fence, and about a mile of super rocky road!

Mountainart, you may be right about the eagles, but that doesn't excuse to countless number of people that park where it's marked no parking and ignore the signs and cross the tape, trespassing where it's marked not to, just to play in stuff that you find in the freezer.

Once 1 or 2 park somewhere that is marked no parking (any where on the mountain), more will follow, clogging up the roadway; Then it takes an extra hour to go a mile or two near the drift park & above Snow Valley.

So, does that excuse their parking illegally or trespassing in marked areas? Leaving trash, etc, etc.

Yet, it's silly eco sensitism as the eagles literally don't care. Eagle nests outside a busy apartment and street next door to where used to live in Kalispell Mt. Eagles would play with local kids putting dead rats on string. The "Eagles might get nervous or stressed by seeing people" is pure sierra club false propoganda.

Definitely not enough. Can't believe those fools can's read the signs and think how bad it will be over the holidays. Luckily she isn't on the nest now.
