There was little new to report on Montana fires today. Most of the large fires in the state showed little growth as crews worked to take advantage of milder weather conditions to strengthen containment lines and mop up hotspots.
But don't let your guard down, because fire season isn't over yet. That relatively mild weather is expected to change this weekend. Much of western and central Montana is under a Red Flag order for Saturday, meaning an imminent critical fire weather pattern is occurring.
