The official start to wildfire season actually was in June.  Billings got into the wildfire mix last weekend.Two fires continue to burn around Billings.  The Hysham Hills fire has burned about 800 acres as of late on July 28th.

The Hysham Hills fire was contained by 3 a.m. on July 27th but smoldered for a good part of Monday.  The perimeter of the blaze has not grown since Sunday.

A fire near Lavina in Golden Valley County started on Sunday, burning about 200 acres in the Painted Robe Creek Drainage.  As of late July 28th that fire was about 50 percent contained.  The cause for both of these fires are under investigation.

A Lodge Grass Basin Wildfire has burned 167 acres on Crow Agency.  There have been a few fires started by over heated farm equipment, but for the most part fire crews are able to extinguish those blazes quickly.
