The other fires we talked about earlier in the week around Billings are contained!The Hysham Hills fire burned about 800 acres from last weekend.  The Golden Valley County fire, out by Lavina has been extinguished as has the Basin Fire near Roundup.

Keep in mind thatStage one fire restrictions have increased.The Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks has issued a no campfire burn restriction in Stillwater and Treasure Counties.  Yellowstone County as well as Carbon County issued Stage one restrictions last week.  All restrictions will remain in effect until further notice.

On July 31st at about 11:45 a.m. there was a grass fire on 64th street and Laurel Road that lasted for about an hour.  The high winds made it a challenge to put it out initially but with the combined efforts of the Laurel Volunteer Fire Department as well as the Billings Fire Department and Fisher Sand and Gravel, they were able to protect a home from being damaged.
