Bomber Lake Fire update from US Forest Service – Shoshone National Forest:
Following a low-level flight over the Bomber Lake Fire late yesterday afternoon, the fire is estimated at 20 acres and is confirmed as lightning caused.
As public and firefighter safety continue to be the number one priority, Shoshone National Forest fire managers are recommending no travel into the Bomber Creek area. This information has been posted at both the new and old Glacier Trail trailheads.
Managers will continue to allow this fire to play its natural role within the Fitzpatrick Wilderness. Due to steep, rugged terrain and the low probability of the fire leaving the current location, fire managers will monitor the fire using a combination of aerial platforms, lookout observations, and a remote camera that will view the fire from a distance. This camera will be put into place on Friday, August 30th.
