Photos: Sprague Fire in Glacier National Park

The lightning-caused Sprague Fire was first reported burning above Crystal Ford on the Gunsight Pass Trail on Aug. 10 and has been tormenting the Lake McDonald area for weeks. Thick smoke from the fire has blanketed the area, forcing the Lake McDonald Lodge and its surrounding amenities to close early. The fire consumed the historic Sperry Chalet on Aug. 31.
