Here is something that I quickly put together showing the Ash Creek fire. The footage was shot on July 3 though the video and stats are from July 4th.

Thanks for posting this.

My father and I (and one of my sons) drove a load of supplies down to the firehall in Broadus yesterday (from First Lutheran Church, through Our Savior's in Broadus - powerades and chapstick and eyedrops and that sort of thing). Broadus certainly didn't have much of a chance to celebrate Independence Day this year.

On our way back to Miles City, we saw that the fire was actively burning as far north as Volborg - while we couldn't see the flames from the road, the sky was red for about a mile, the fire being maybe 5 miles from the highway. We were 31 miles north of 212 at that point, and I understand that the fire is burning south of 212 as well...

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Broadus, Ashland and the region. I lived in Broadus until age 5, and have a lot of fond early memories of both the people and the community.

Between the drought conditions and the fires, it is turning out to be a rough year for a lot of producers.

A portion of this short video showing this immense fire may appear in a segment on wildfire on the national news airing Monday night on CBS. They haven't done the final edits so no guarantees--could easily end up on the cutting room floor. Apparently they were shooting in eastern MT but apparently something about this clip compliments the other content they shot. May be worth having a look either way.
