New Closures In Effect For Copper King Fire
The Copper King fire, burning on just over 22,000 acres east of Thompson Falls, has new closures in effect.
“We do want to just step up the suppression efforts, and in order to do that, closing off this area will just make it that much more safe for the public, and easier for the fire crews to do their work,” says Fire Information officer Christi Powers. Here is an area closure map.
Over the next three days, the Copper King is expected to continue moving towards Weeksville.
