Firefighters protecting Montana ranger station

By The Associated Press
   Firefighters in western Montana have installed sprinklers and wrapped the
historic Magruder Ranger Station in material to protect it from heat because
of a wildfire burning near the Montana-Idaho border.
   Officials on Saturday say crews have also wrapped Hells Half Lookout east of
the ranger station in protective wrap.
   The lightning-caused Gold Pan fire burning through timber grew by more than
three square miles on Friday to about 11 square miles. Officials put its location
 at 35 air miles southwest of Sula, Mont., in the Frank Church River of No Return
Wilderness in Idaho.
   Officials say the Magruder Road Corridor has been closed at Nez Perce Pass on
 the Montana-Idaho border.
