Okay, this one is ten minutes up the highway...

Jul 22, 2013 12:26:PM
BONNER - Firefighters are battling a wildfire that's broken out near the old Stimson mill in Bonner.
Details are limited at this time, but a plume of smoke can easily be seen in the area and flames are visible from Interstate 90.
Our reporter on the scene says that trees on a hillside west of the old mill are burning.
A helicopter is already making water drops in the area and the Missoula Rural Fire District is on scene, which is west of Montana Highway 200, near the Blackfoot River.
We'll have more on this developing story as information becomes available.

I can hear the helicopters...there's lots of up and down mountains before it can reach Missoula and I live in the middle of Missoula.

Always...I even have a pick-up and run kit with all our medications and testing supplies in vacuum sealed bags, 10 days worth. I'm an over preparer. If the zombie apocalypse comes Shrek and I are set.

Heck with BEING prepared - all you would see of me is the dust I stirred up while getting out of Dodge. Be safe. Any idea if Steve and the Mrs. are running their route through the fire zone? I hope not!

Okay, I just checked, that fire is under control and not progressing. So highway traffic is running fine. But, we are under an extremely high fire danger, even a cricket rubbing it's legs together could start a brush fire. I have the weather radio on, tuned to the DNRC. Trust me, I'm not flirting with danger. We go through this every year.

I'm not a first responder, but I AM a responder...I don't get to "get out of Dodge". And I don't want to, I'm a nurse for a reason.
