Southeastern Montana Fire Complex In Mop-Up Stages

The southeastern Montana complex of fires is expected to be contained at any time. The last report released from the Incident Management Team was released at 8 o'clock last night, and indicated the fire was 95 percent contained. The fires have burned almost a quarter of a million acres of BLM, county, and private land. We'll have more about recovery efforts as information becomes available.
