Water Gremlin and I went up past Friday Creek tonite. 5 miles past Jim Creek was a fire burning in the trees on the left side where a trail runs thru the woods. Looked to be a hundred yards or so wide 1/2 mile long and being pushed by a sustained 30 mph wind. On the way back around 9pm it had increased in size and was 2 miles long. Dry grass and dry wood. Fires burning 40 feet up in the beetle killed spruce. We called it in at 6:30 pm but I guess they aren't going to try to put it out tonite. Smoke cloud all the way to butte. With this wind I wouldn't be surprised to see it near Butte tomorrow. Some bozos either didn't duck out their campfire or they torched it on purpose.
