Law Enforcement Looking For Information About Man Impersonating Firefighters

Sheriff said man was dressed as firefighter telling people they needed to evacuate

Flathead County law enforcement is looking for information about a man who allegedly impersonated a firefighter and told people they need to evacuate.

Sheriff Chuck Curry said his office received at least two reports last week of a man dressed as a firefighter with a yellow shirt and green pants telling people in Kila and Bigfork to leave their homes.

Curry noted that a firefighter would never deliver information about a possible evacuation.

“If there is ever an evacuation that message would come from a law enforcement officer, not a firefighter,” Curry said.

If anyone has information about the incident, they are encouraged to call the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office at (406) 758-5610.
