GLACIER NATIONAL PARK – Crews are continuing to battle the Boundary fire that’s burning in the northeast part of Glacier National Park near the Canadian border.

The nearly 2,100-acre blaze is 0% contained as it burns in the Boundary Creek Valley, near the Campbell Mountain area west of Upper Waterton Lake.

Structure protection remains in place at Goat Haunt. All of the trails originating at Goat Haunt are closed at this time due to the Boundary fire.

While boat tours operated by Waterton Shoreline Cruise Company are once again landing at Goat Haunt, visitors are limited to the boat dock pavilion and restroom area.

A public meeting to discuss the Howe Ridge and Boundary fires will be held on Tuesday, September 4 at 6 p.m. in the Glacier National Park Community Building.

There are 11 people assigned to battle the Boundary Fire, which was first reported on August 23.
