Smoke is visible in northwest Montana due to a prescribed fire in the area.
Burn operations are taking place in the Trout Creek and Attlebury Creek drainages in the Kootenai National Forest.
Forest officials expect to burn up to 2,400 acres.
The objective is to improve forage for big game species as well as reduce hazardous fuels.
The burns prompted area and trail closures last week, including the main stem, south branch, and west fork of Trout Creek.
Smoke is expected to be visible for several days.
