The Flathead Beacon reports that winds have fanned two wildfires burning in Glacier National Park, but cool and wet weather this week could calm both blazes in the coming days.

This weekend was an active one for the Howe Ridge Fire and Boundary Fire in Glacier National Park. On Sept. 8, the Boundary Fire grew by more than 1,000 acres and spread into Canada. As of Sept. 10, the fire was listed at 2,896 acres and 13 percent contained. Firefighters from Glacier Park and Waterton Lakes National Park are working to contain the blaze that has forced the closure of a number of trails on both sides of the border.
