Sheep Gap Fire September 1, 2017

The Sheep Gap Fire here in western Montana has expanded into a rather large fire and is now threatening homes on two sides of its perimeter. For the next few weeks (hopefully not months) I plan to document its progress on the blog.

As of last night I will also again have the privilege of being a member of the Plains/Paradise Rural Fire Department and so I expect to be busy, but as time permits I will take and post what photos I can of the fire activity and the fire progress.

These photos (except for the last one which was taken two nights ago) were taken of two small helicopters that are dropping water on the fire this morning. Resources are very scarce now with all of the fires burning in this part of Montana.

This last photo was taken two nights ago when there was a clear view of the flames.
