Six hundred fifty acres of United States Forest Service and Fish, Wildlife and Parks land were ablaze this past week near Big Sky. The tally of scorched acres climbed significantly after an aircraft was able to gps the fire. No private land or structures were damaged.
The Bridger Foothills Fire that kicked-off Friday afternoon is zero percent contained as of today. The cause remains a mystery and is under investigation, Corey Lewellen, Custer Gallatin National Forest Bozeman District Ranger said during the virtual public meeting held this afternoon.
