POLSON - The Flathead Lake Biological Station stated in a social media post that it has been confirmed a structure was lost Monday afternoon to the Elmo Fire.

High winds, low humidity and 15 mph winds have blown the fire towards Dayton.

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) have organized resources for the impacted communities, and are working on getting older people and those with health conditions rooms at hotels.

The Montana Red Cross has opened a shelter for people displaced by the Elmo wildfire at Polson High School. Additionally, the Tribal Health mobile health van will be at the Polson High School center on Tuesday.
