Sigh…Another Western Montana Wildfire
By angelamontana


We’re sure you’ve seen the incredible timelapse video of Hamilton’s Roaring Lion Fire on the south side of town but moving VERY quickly, forcing hundreds to evacuate and leaving animals missing.  The Montana Outdoor Radio Show sends our thoughts and prayers to all affected by this devastating fire.  The craziest part of this fire is that we were looking at a house just two miles from Roaring Lion Road and decided to put an offer on the house we looked at on Sunday, July 31st.  We noticed some smoke while we were at the house, but we didn’t give it much thought.  I took a picture of the fire that was burning on the side of the mountain at 2:20pm while we were driving by to go fill out the paperwork to submit our offer.  This was series of pictures I took while we were in Hamilton and the area spanning 2-3 hours for each picture:
