Ridge Fire active burning July 20
The fire has burned over 3,000 acres about 15 miles from Lowman, but fire activity level Sunday was much lower than the previous two days. There was no growth in acreage but there was still significant fire activity inside the perimeter as well as some spot fires in new fuels downwind. The fire is 10 miles southwest of Bull Trout Lake and campground, which is the nearest recreation area at risk.
