Hi Jeff! Or should I call you mr. Bridges? I'm not sure if this forum is the place to be doing this but I wasn't sure where else I could contact you. I'd like to chat with you a little bit about what's going on in Montana as far as our 800,000 Acres that have burned recently. I understand the crisis in Texas and that there are fires burning in several other states especially in the Pacific Northwest however Montana has gotten nearly zero attention in the national news media and we are in desperate need of all the help we can get up here people are losing their homes their livestock their livelihoods their businesses and in a couple of cases their lives there doesn't seem to be any relief in sight for us and I found out that your wife is from here. I'm hoping that this gets to you and that you understand I'm trying to see if maybe you could get our story out there and maybe be the voice for Montana. If so I would love to hear from you. Sincerely, Adrienne Sewell..... Belgrade Montana

Hi Adrienne - What a terrible crisis in such a beautiful state! I'm so sorry. I suggest your best bet is to write to Jeff via his guest book on this site or send an email to him via his assistant, Becky becky@jeffbridges.com  By the way, Jeff's wife is from North Dakota, but they both love Montana. 
Wishing you all the best with this outreach!

Hi there.  I just was passing by and saw your post.  

I live in Montana too and the subject of Montana being ignored is a problem.  We never seem to be important enough to notice.  

I went to Pocatello yesterday and when I was coming home on I-15 north it was like driving into a toxic smoke event as soon as I got past Dillon!  It was dark, throat searing, cough-making thick smoke.  And it ain't goin' away anytime soon.  So even if the fire is not at your back door - the smoke is causing health havoc.
They say the fire we are getting smoke from is the Meyers fire, about 60 miles west of here.   https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/5397/

But there are so many fires that there is smoke from many of them.  There are over 40 fires right now.

https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/state/27/0/


They aren't really fighting the Meyers fire as the terrain is too rough.  

Well - that's about all I know.  

Thank you for the post.

Hi! It's great to hear from a fellow Montana. I have lived here most of my life and I've never seen anything so terrible. Unfortunately they aren't able to fight many of the fires because of the terrain and also the lack of firefighters at this moment. It just makes me sad to see such a beautiful and wonderful place going up in smoke. I only wrote on this forum and hopes of getting our voices heard. It's usually not my style but I do believe we are all at a desperate point. I hope you have safe travels!

Sincerely,
Adrienne Sewell, Belgrade Montana

I've lived here all my life.  (Montana) I've seen this fire situation getting worse every year.  When I was a kid we didn't have forest fires like this.  Climate change - folks.  It's real.
