NEW START ON THE SALMON-COBALT RANGER DISTRICT 8-14-15
A new start was detected on the Salmon-Cobalt Ranger District this afternoon north of Salmon. Smoke from the Bobcat fire is visible from the communities of Salmon and North Fork. The fire is currently estimated at 30 acres.
Firefighters were able to get to the fire before dark and make an initial assessment. Firefighters have moved away from the fire area for the night. Fire managers are currently forming a plan for tomorrow morning.
Our primary concern is for the safety of firefighters and public. Therefore, be mindful of traffic congestion along Highway 93. Fire managers urge the public to continue traveling past the fire area and not stopping along the roadway.
