The Nation : Fires Plague Northwest

September 01, 1985

A fire that had been burning for weeks and had consumed 30,500 acres in eastern Idaho's Salmon National Forest jumped across the border into Montana's Bitterroot National Forest, where about 940 firefighters aided by helicopters and bulldozers fought it in mountainous terrain nearly 7,000 feet high. Meanwhile, firefighters battled a 25,000-acre forest and grass blaze near Tonasket in northern Washington that has burned 15 families out of their homes. Cool weather helped firefighters control a 12,000-acre range fire in the Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge in southern Oregon.
