W. Mullan Fire Now 4100 Acres

SUPERIOR -

The West Mullan fire is now more than 4100 acres, forcing more evacuations in the Superior area.

On the west side, the fire has crossed Pardee Creek and moved upslope to the ridgetop above Keystone Creek.

The fire also expanded downslope the east side into the Flat Creek drainage, and spread north toward a BPA powerline.

Fire officials pulled fire personnel off the lines Wednesday, making air operations the primary means of battling the fire.

Drier air conditions and increased temperatures on Thursday are expected to hinder fire suppression.

A road block is in place on the bridge in Superior crossing the Clark Fork River restricting access to the north.

Homes along Pardee, East Pardee, and Flat Creek Roads and part of West Mullan Road remain under mandatory evacuation.  

West Mullan and East Mullan Road, west of Big Eddy fishing access site are now under mandatory evacuation.

Residents along Dry Gulch and Keystone Road have received pre-evacuation notifications.

About 80-100 residences are threatened by the fire, but no structures have been damaged.

Damages are estimated at $1,300,000.

A community meeting is scheduled for Thursday at 8 p.m. at the Mineral County Courthouse in Superior.
