Meridian Fire Plume Visible from Ketchum, Stanley
Tuesday, October 6, 2020

Wondering about that plume of smoke visible from the bike path south of Ketchum? The one that looks like it’s on Trail Creek Summit?

It’s the Meridian Fire and Wood River Valley residents say they can see it from Stanley, as well.

The fire is burning about 22 miles south of Clayton in the Hunter Creek drainage on the Lost River Ranger District. It's burning in Douglas fir and grass. Reported Monday night, it is now 30 acres. The cause is unknown.

It is 17 miles north of Ketchum as the crow flies and 7 miles northwest of Trail Creek summit near the head of the North Fork of the Big Lost River.

UPDATE: As of 6 p.m.--three hours after this report--the fire has grown to 235 acres. It is expected to grow further overnight.
