10:24 a.m. A thief stole a purse out of a shopping cart at a supermarket in Evergreen.

12 p.m. People were shooting at a 500-gallon fuel tank out on the North Fork.

4:26 p.m. A young boy was bit in the face by a ferocious dog that looked like a black lab. The dog is now in custody.

5:49 p.m. Deputies counseled an 11-year-old Bigfork boy because he wouldn’t do his chores and had been kicking at his Mother. He also has a history of attacking his 12-year-old sister. He claimed that he has been “very angry” lately.

7:06 p.m. There was a chimney fire in a tinder barn on Holt Stage in Kalispell. The barn owner was advised not to use his stove in his barn until it is up to code.
