The Southeast Montana Comples of fires reports progress on the fires included in their jurisdiction.

The 46,214 acre Taylor Creek started July 3 about 25 miles southeast of Ashland. It is only 20 percent contained and winds have been causing some erratic behavior.

The huge Ash Creek Fire is 70 percent contained, and Highway 212 has been reopened near the fire, with speed restrictions. That fire has burned over 248,000 acres.

Other fires are being contained – Coal Seam is 100 percent contained, Horse Creek is 95 percent contained, Powerline is 90 percent contained.

On the Beaverhead-Deerlodge Forest, the Pony Fire is still dangerous and burnouts are planned. However, with the dry conditions and continuing fire activity, the Beaverhead-Deerlodge officials have implemented Stage 1 restrictions, relating to camping and smoking.
