The Montana wildfire report is smaller today, with some of the blazes being controlled. Others remain dangerous, however.

The Corral Fire at Helena has been declared “inactive” Monday morning.

The Bear Trap 2 Fire is 97 percent contained and some of the recreation areas on the lower Madison River Recreation area are being reopened. The BLM sites open are Warm Srpings, California Corner, Trapper Springs, and Red Mountain. Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks sites open are Damsel Fly, Blacks Ford and Greycliff. Authorities said other areas may not be reopened until next week.

The Pony Fire and the Antelope Lane Fire both received rain Sunday. The Pony Fire is still dangerous at 4,800 acres and only 15 percent contained. However, the Pone Fire is 90 percent contained at 707 acres 10 miles north of Whitehall.

The Ash Creek Fire, Montana’s largest, grew in the Sunday wind to 170,000 acres, moving mainly to the east. It is 40 percent contained, 10 miles east of Lame Deer.

The Dahl Fire is 75 percent contained at 22,000 acres in Musselshell County.

Fire restrictions are being put in place in many forests, which limit your use of fire to recreaetion areas and approved firepits. And, another reminder to leave your fireworks at home if you’re headed to the hills. The state is drying out rapidly.
