Montana – Fire crews from across the state have been working tirelessly for almost two weeks to gain control under Robertson Draw Fire.
As of Friday the size of the fire is around 30,000 acres. Nearly 355 firefighters and other crew members worked to extinguish the fire which destroyed 30 structures and 10 homes.
Luis Feltmann of Division Foxtrot advices home owners to prep their property in case of a fire near them as the summer ahead is expected to be long and very hot.
People need to be aware of fire restrictions and be very cautious with fireworks in order to prevent more wildfires.
“Today there are fire restrictions on the National Forest. With the holiday weekend coming up and the higher winds we’re getting, and the hot temperatures, fireworks are banned on national forests. So, folks need to be mindful of that,” said Feltmann.
