Memaloose Lake

Unfortunately it appears Memaloose Lake is in the heart of the Riverside Fire, hopefully some of those giant Noble Firs will survive.
High Lake is also inside of the burn area
however as of now Joyce Lake, Skookum Lake and Round Lake are outside of the fire.
They’re doing zero containment as of now in the Roaring River Wilderness as the west side around the communities is the biggest priority but they’re hoping to start getting in there to figure out a plan.

Pray for rain

The fire mapping model The NY Times is using seems to show that Riverside Fire didn’t scorch as as much as other models are showing, perhaps those areas only got a taste of the fire.
