HELENA – Firefighters are working to suppress a fire in northwest Montana in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area.
The Independent Record reports that the fire is burning grass and mature Douglas fir near lower North Fork Sun River, southeast of the Forest Service cabin on Cabin Creek, in the Rocky Mountain Ranger District.
Firefighters were hiking to the fire Saturday night and were working to suppress the fire where it was safe to do so. Investigators believe the blaze was started by a warning or campfire.
There are no area closures in place, but people are encouraged to avoid the area so as not to disrupt suppression efforts.
