HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – As warm, dry weather continues to prevail across the Hi-Line and throughout Montana, the risk of wildfires continues to increase.
As a result, the Northern Rockies Incident Management Team has increased fire preparedness to Level Five as of Sunday morning. This means resources to fight fires throughout Montana are being stressed, and it is critical that Montanans do their part to prevent fires from starting and spreading.
Any spark, whether man-made or nature-caused, may cause new fire starts.
It is crucial that people observe fire restrictions in their local jurisdictions. Most counties on the Hi-Line have a burn ban and/or Stage 1 or Stage 2 fire restrictions in place.
