Zumwalt Way, southeast of Miller Creek Road, east of Lolo and east of the Bitterroot River. The fire is approximately 50 acres and being pushed by gusty winds. Firefighting resources are arriving on the scene and beginning to suppress the fire. Nonresidents are asked to not use Upper or Lower Miller Creek Roads at this time so fire equipment can get in and residents on Oral Zumwalt Way can safely leave. More information will be out as soon as it is available...
