New Fire Burning In Gallatin County
Fire season continues to rage in Southwest Montana. Monday afternoon outside of Toston, lightning started a new fire that is currently burning on private and state land. It’s currently estimated around 3,000 acres. No houses were threatened by the lightning-caused blaze known as the Bean Fire, said Kerry O’Connell with Gallatin emergency management.
National Weather Service forecasters said the cool weather was supposed to linger for a couple more days, giving a potential boost to firefighters before warm weather returns Friday.
