GLACIER NATIONAL PARK – There’s been little change for crews battling the 2,125 acre Boundary fire that’s burning in the northeast part of Glacier National Park near the Canadian border.

The cool and wet weather has helped to slow activity on the Boundary Fire and crews are using the break in the weather to assess the fire and develop plans for future actions against the blaze.

Structure protection remains in place at Goat Haunt. Additionally, all trails originating at Goat Haunt are closed at this time. Boat tours operated by Waterton Shoreline Cruise Company continue on Waterton Lake, but cruises are not landing at Goat Haunt at this time.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced on Monday morning that the seasonal Port of Goat Haunt in Montana will be closed indefinitely due to the blaze.

The blaze which was first reported on August 23rd is burning in the Boundary Creek Valley, near the Campbell Mountain area west of Upper Waterton Lake.

Glacier National Park and most of western Montana are under Stage II Fire Restrictions.
