Commercial-scale water piping system hurriedly installed to protect Lake McDonald Lodge in Glacier NP from wildfire

"Rain for Rent," a large-scale piping system designed to spray water over large areas, was being installed at Lake McDonald Lodge in Glacier National Park to protect the historic facility and its surrounding complex from the Sprague Fire that has been burning for nearly a month in the mountains above the lake.

The main line for the system was installed Thursday, and lateral lines were expected to be completed Friday, the National Park Service said.
