Growth on the Moose Fire burning northwest of Salmon has been minimal, allowing crews to continue suppression efforts on the southeast flank of the fire, Salmon-Challis National Forest officials said Sunday. A community meeting is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 26, at the Idaho Fish & Game Office at 6:00 p.m. The meeting will also be filmed and posted to the Salmon-Challis National Forest Facebook page for those not able to make the meeting in person. The weather is expected to be dry with moderate temperatures over the next few days; lighter winds are also anticipated. Crews will take advantage of the conditions to work on hot spots on the southeastern portion of the fire, where smoldering behavior is expected.
