Seeley Lake residents prepare to flee Jocko Lakes fire
In two weekend days, the Jocko Lakes fire exploded across 18,000 acres, destroying one home, damaging several others and threatening this small western Montana town.
In doing so, the wildfire earned itself designation Sunday as the No. 1 priority forest fire in the nation.
After Saturday?s firestorm and flurry of evacuations, Sunday brought minimal winds and gave fire crews a fighting chance to get a handle on the fire, which is just a mile west of Seeley Lake and a mile north of Placid Lake.
Seeley Lake is 25 miles from The Cabin. There's unlikely to be a threat the The Swan (where I grew up). However, Seeley Lake is pretty close to home as I went to high school there and we have a very good family friend living in "Dog Town". Must be exciting times right now.
This fire made me think of this awesome photo from a few years back.
