Saturday Reports from Montana Forest Fires Show Growth
At the end of week, some of the Forest Service incident management teams "transitioned out" to provide a couple of days rest for teams and bring in fresh firefighters. Weather systems are bringing in some wind and a few clouds.
Here's a look at a few western Montana fires Saturday morning (information from inciweb):
Fire danger on the Bitterroot National Forest is "Extreme" and we are under Stage 2 fire restrictions. The Dillon area just started Stage 1 fire restrictions. There are "hoot owl" restrictions on portions of the Bitterroot River.
