Better mapping from an overflight shows the Lost Horse forest fire still at 55 acres, according to Tod McKay of the Bitterroot National Forest.

The lightning caused fire has been burning for about a week at the top of Brandy Peak in the Lost Horse drainage. McKay said the fire is miles away from any structures up the Lost Horse and that fires are spread among rocky, steep areas near the top of the peak. Helicopters are continually dropping water on the fire.

Meanwhile Ravalli County has banned open burning for the rest of the summer and McKay said that unattended campfires are still being found throughout western Montana. The latest one was on the Lolo National Forest.
