Marathon area fires

There are no road closures that we know of for this batch of fires:

Iron Mountain fire is *just* north of Marathon/Hwy 90; it is spreading east toward Hwy 385.

Schwartz fire is east of Marathon, north of Hwy 90 and spreading slowly west toward Hwy 385.

Gage/Holland fire is a bit west of Alpine, not sure which side of Hwy 90 it's on.
