Morrell Complex Fire
Numerous lightning strikes were reported on Friday night 8-15-15. Some of those strikes resulted in fires. The most concerning to residents of Seeley Lake and surrounding area are the ones which resulted in a large plume of smoke rising to the north of town.
The fire, now named the Morrell Complex Fire though impressive in its smoke plume, is currently not a threat to the town of Seeley lake and any structures along the Hwy 83 corridor north of town.
The Morrell Complex fire is in the Charge of the U.S. Forest Service.
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
