Thompson River Complex Fire Could Reach 20 Structures

Posted: Updated:
PLAINS -

Almost 800 acres burn in the Thompson River Complex fire.

There's actually two fires. One, the Koo Koo Sint fire, is north of Highway 200 about 6 miles east of Thompson Falls. The other, Spruce fire, is almost 6 miles northeast of Thompson Falls in the Spruce Creek drainage.

About 280 people fight these lightning caused fires.

Officials now worry that the flames could reach the Clark Fork valley floor. Already, they've pointed out at least 20 buildings that could be in harm's way as well as a high voltage BPA power line.

Another lightning caused fire on the west side of Rock Creek Road now reaches 15 acres and 20 firefighters are working on it.
