Good evening. Fire crews are actively responding to and suppressing the Sourdough Fire located south-southwest of Sourdough Peak.
As of 8:00 p.m. on October 30th, the fire is estimated to be approximately 1,000 acres and fire personnel will be manning the fire throughout the night.
In addition to the Sourdough Fire, a small fire south of the Bear Creek Fire location is estimated to be about 1/10th of an acre.
Local landowners have been instrumental in supporting fire crews and facilitating a rapid response to mitigate potential threats and assist Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest personnel.
We appreciate your support and would like to ask that everyone be especially mindful of making sure your campfire is completely out prior to leaving a campsite.
