The 22,000-acre Meyers Fire has been burning south of Philipsburg this summer and made a 4,800 acre jump on Monday, bringing it into the southeast side of Bitterroot National Forest.

The fire came into the Darby/Sula Ranger District in the Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness and the Reynolds and Lick Creek Saddle areas. About 1,700 acres is on fire in the Bitterroot National Forest and 225 property owners in the East Fork area have been put on Evacuation Warning status by the Ravalli County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Steve Holton said the door-to-door notifications were done between Forest Road #5778 (Teepee Creek) and Forest Service Road #724 (Little East Fork).

The Bitterroot National Forest closed the East Fork Road at the East Fork Guard Station. The closure includes Martin Creek Campground, East Fork Trail, Lick Creek Trail, Reynolds Creek Trail and Chain of Lakes Trail.
