Morrell Complex Fire
[UPDATE] -- The Morrell Complex Fire, started by lightning August 15, 2015, has been downgraded to a Type 4 incident and has been handed back over to the Seeley Lake Ranger District, with Chad Burnett assuming the role of incident commander. Continued moisture and cool temperatures have kept fire activity extremely low. Crews patrolled the fire perimeter yesterday and could not identify a single smoke. Containment of the 870 acre fire is currently 95%. In addition, the closure area for the fire has been significantly reduced in size. Numerous lightning strikes were to blame for the blaze.
The Seeley Lake Rural Fire district, DNRC and Forest Service Firefighters are also checking other lightning strikes. None of those are threatening Seeley Lake.
Your Seeley Lake Rural Fire District Volunteers Firefighters and EMT’s along with the Administration remain committed to Saving Lives and Protecting the property of the residents in our District. We are also committed to responding to all 911 dispatches at all times.

SLRFD needs Volunteer Firefighters and EMT's.
We are currently seeking motivated men and woman living in or near Seeley Lake to Volunteer for our Fire District. We will provide the training to make you successful as a Volunteer Firefighter.
We also offer classes periodically if you desire to be a EMT.
SLRFD operates out of 2 fire stations. We respond to Fire and Medical Emergencies. We work hand in hand with all of our surrounding Depts. and agencies. We believe in training that makes our members comfortable in the duties that they will be asked to perform in the service of their community. We also believe in making volunteering fun. Though there are times when much is asked in the heat of the 911 dispatches, there is also plenty of time to have fun with your Volunteer Brothers and Sisters. You will become part of this family.
Please contact us if you have any interest or questions about volunteering. A call does not constitute a commitment and we would love to talk to you and answer any questions you may have. We need you!
Chief Bob: 406-210-6354
