Forest Services monitors air quality on Red Shale fire - Choteau Acantha: News

Forest Services monitors air quality on Red Shale fire

Posted: Wednesday, August 14, 2013 3:00 pm

Two smoke monitors along with continuous updates from the U.S. Forest Service are providing reassuring information on the Red Shale fire located 37 miles west of Choteau in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, amid some criticism that the fire should have been suppressed rather than managed as a resource benefit.

Rocky Mountain District Ranger Mike Munoz attended the Lewis and Clark County Government Day in Augusta on Aug. 9 to show slides and to provide background on how the wildfire, detected on July 18 and now at 9,294 acres, is behaving under the agency’s management and how the agency and people with compromised airways can use the information from the smoke monitors located at the Ear Mountain Administrative Site and at the Augusta Ranger Station.
