LEWISTOWN — The long, hot days of summer are drying out the vegetation in north-central Montana. The resulting increased fire danger has prompted authorities to begin implementing fire restrictions.
Hill and Roosevelt counties will begin Stage 1 fire restrictions Friday starting at 12:01 a.m.
The restrictions apply to all state, private and Bureau of Land Managements-managed lands within these counties. All U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service managed lands within these counties will not implement fire restrictions at this time.
