Cottonwood Gulch Fire North of Manhattan Grows Significantly

Fire crews from all over Gallatin County and surrounding areas have been working tirelessly on what is now known as the Cottonwood Gulch Fire.  High winds on Sunday caused the human caused fire to grow substantially.

Here is the latest press release from Gallatin County Emergency Management:

The Cottonwood Gulch Fire burning North of Manhattan in the Horseshoe Hills is now estimated at 8500 acres in size.

Fire crews are still on the fire and will remain on the fire all night.  More fire resources have been ordered to replace them on Monday.

Fire crews are working throughout the entire fire area and everyone is encouraged to stay away from the fire.

While it is interesting to come see what is happening, this is highly discouraged as it adds traffic to these small roads and can impede the fire personnel trying to do their jobs.

It is not uncommon for curiosity to get someone into a place they shouldn’t be and they now become part of the emergency.  Please help the firefighters by staying out of the area.

The cause of the Cottonwood Gulch has been determined to be human caused and it is currently under investigation.
