My guess would be Helena....WE ARE BURNING TO THE GROUND!!!!

Big Fire in the Scratchgravel Hills here....another in the Bull Mountains near Boulder, and another in the Tobacco Roots near Pony.

With a howling 35 mph wind here, that would get the smoke over to Miles very quick.

Saying prayers that you do not have the devastation we had here in Texas (Grimes, Waller,and Montgomery Counties) in early Sept 2011. We were evacuated 3 times and for 7 days the last time. Much luckier than a few subdivisions around us which burned to the ground. No fire damage, just inconvenience and docking of pay and vacation days :-(

U.S. govenment doesn't help. We lost about $3000 due to loss of home/business use, hotel and restaurant bills, clothing (cheap from Walmart) because we had no access to our possessions unexpectedly, etc, etc. etc.

Prayers to all in the fire zones in Montana, Utah, Colorado, and elsewhere.

I just had a family fly into Landstuhl to see their wounded son who lost both legs a couple days ago. They came from Co Springs and when they left their house yesterday, the only thing between them and their house was a bridge. The house has suddenly become the least of their worries. Their son, his wife and they have a long road ahead.

The firefighters saved our place Wednesday night. This is Highway 212. I took this smokey pic Thursday afternoon by our mailbox after an ice run to Gillette. The right side is toast and the left side is the frontage of our place.

There is nothing quite as humbling as watching the whole ponderosa ridge across the road in front of your house torch off in the middle of the night. Hope you all get to miss that experience. Stay safe.

Not exactly. I created the picture with the viewer tool and then hosted it on photobucket.

With this viewer you need to turn on the MODIS layer to see where the fire is and you can zoom in to your area of interest.

Ash Creek Fire is now (Sat June 30), 150,000 acres. They are trying to keep it on the North side of 212 highway, as it would be hard to fight if it gets south of the highway. Will be starting back fires Sunday in its predicted path, which may burn more REA poles and cut the electrictiy to Broadus, which just got electricity Saturday night, after being out of electricity for five days.

Yeah, it's my understanding that they thought they'd gotten some containment on the Beaver creek side, but that the winds came up and the fire got loose again. I'll find out later tonight if my dad and my aunt are going to evacuate or not.

They were able to save all the buildings at Cecil Kolka's and Stinsons - hopefully there's not a bunch of wind in the wrong direction today.

Dad & Sandra haven't left yet, which seems a little risky, particularly since they don't have reliable land line service, and no cell coverage.

If it DOES blow up today, I would assume they'd head for town, but I've been assuming that for the last several days smile

The wind shifted overnight and is blowing the smoke in our (Gillette) direction. It is so thick that you can't see Rawhide Butte from the airport which is about a mile away. I can't imagine what it is like as you get closer to the fire. Not a good day to be out if you have respiratory issues.

At least there's some patches of green left for what livestock there is still in the area. I can only imagine the loss of livestock and wildlife given the time of year and forest leasing for people's cattle.

Haven't heard from my sister tonight but did see that her and Mom were headed to Beverly Green's with a truck load of ice tonight.

I know I'm not a weather forecaster but given the high temps and the fronts butting into each other tommorow, I'm seriously praying for everyone's safety in the next 24 hours. It looks to get very very nasty. frown

Anyone with cattle in that area has a serious problem. Especially since on BLM land they won't even let burned over ground be grazed the year after the fire in some cases.

thanks for that update, Bridgier, yesterday so glad Cecil Kolkas blgs were saved...I imagine your Dad and Sandra stayed behind to try to fight for their blgs too but that is scary and I am hoping they got out by now...last update I heard, it was on Elk Ridge a mile south of Stacey School so it is in that heavy timber on elk ridge and bearing down on our old ranch...God Bless the Stacey residents and prayers for their cattle and homes...Oh, also, hope the other Kolka ranch was saved as well...

They're saying this damn Ash Creek Fire is the size of the state of New Hampshire! Was out yesterday to help a friend look for his cows on his forest lease, and I think we located most of them, he'll know better in a few days once they all filter back to the water tank. Even with the wind blowing to the east yesterday, the fire kept burning back towards Minnows and Kolka's. When I left last night it was burning up to the east side of Beavercreek Road. Earlier yesterday a D-4 cat and two graders continued to cut a guard up the divide to hook into the other side to try to keep this monster contained. Heard Hansen's 3rd lease was burning, and the fire jumped over highway 212 to the south.

What little hay the area ranchers had is now burned, some fields were spared, but not near enough to sustain their cattle. The grass on the leases is gone, and it will be at least two years before they are allowed to graze them again.....this is so devastating, not to metion the thousands of acres of great hunting land now destroyed, herds of elk displaced to who knows where.....Not sure if the ranchers will be able to find enough pastures elsewhere to lease so they can graze their herds, or if many will be forced to sell. Terrets were gathering about 400 head of yearlings that were on Davis's fields, mixed in with Mike's cows along with some of Hansens. Not sure if the fire made it to Brian and Maggie Dice's yet on the other side, but I fear if it hasn't it surely will. IT was exploding to the east yesterday, it looked like the air tankers were on a WWII bombing mission, intermixed with some Super Huey's and a CH-47....flames and smoke towering hundreds of feet in the air as the fire continued it's march on it's path of destruction. Lots of prayers by many have given many others hope. It is bad, it will get worse in the short term, but it will eventually be stopped.

If it breaks through at Wiltse's, they're going to let it burn over to the north side of Liscomb.

WE're pretty dry here in Idaho too. We just had a 1 day fire on the edge of town that took 66 homes and 20 other buildings. I hope all you folks in MT come out okay this summer.

The Ash Creek fire was subject to a fairly windy July third evening and July fourth early morning, with breezy winds from the north. A July fourth report from http://inciweb.org/incident/2958/ indicates the fire is now 204,000 acres and has reportedly entered Custer County.

Ash Creek fire is now 70% contained, with the north and northeast part still active. Highway 212 from Broadus to Ashland will reopen at 8 am tomorrow. The Taylor Creek fire is south of the Ash Creek fire, not too far away, is around 50,000 acres in size and only 20% contained.

Hope it was the same for all areas of this monster, but as of 9:30 last night, 2.3 inches of much needed rain was being reported from the NE side of the fire lines. Thankyou one and all for your prayers.

As requested, (you can thank me with a discount on a bottle of wine wink )

everything is yellow today which likely means they are mopping up.



I did notice that there is a spot on the map about 12 miles southeast of Knowlton on the Custer-Fallon county line. It doesn't show anything burning, so I am not sure why it was marked. Hopefully, it is nothing.

The fire near Knowlton was about a mile or two south of Art Drange's house. I would have guessed it at somewhere between 50 and 100 acres. It was pretty well controlled by mid afternoon yesterday and I'm sure that the rain last night put it down for good.

I am sorry you all are going through this. It was hell last summer and early September when we went through this last year.
