The Colville National Forest closed a number of campgrounds, trails and roads in the Tonasket and Three Rivers districts on Monday.

“The vast majority of the forest is still open (with fire precaution restrictions),” said Charles Lassiter, a spokesman for the forest in an email. “The largest closures are around Bonaparte Lake (Spur and Walker Creek fires), Conconully (Cub Creek 2 and Muckamuck fires), and Boulder Creek Road (Bulldog Mountain fire). Those closure are on the Tonasket and Three Rivers Ranger districts, respectively.”

The closures are in response to the Spur Mountain and Bulldog Mountain fires, which were burning 2,000 and 1,800 acres, respectively as of Monday. The closures will remain in effect until Dec. 31, unless rescinded sooner.
