The Lolo National Forest has issued road and trail closures for the Two Mile Fire which is burning about 5 miles west of St. Regis in the Two Mile Creek drainage.

Closures are in place for public and firefighter safety. This closure is exclusive to the Two Mile Fire which is not associated with the West Lolo Complex.

The Two Mile Fire is about 2 acres in size and is burning in extremely steep and difficult terrain which is causing challenges such as roll-out, or when debris such as rocks or burning logs roll down steep slopes past the fire perimeter.

Firefighter safety remains a top priority as firefighters continue to work toward opportunities for containment.
