Officials lifted fire restrictions in parts of south central, northwest and southwest Montana in recent days but much of the state remains under some level regulation.
According to firerestrictions.us there are 151 restrictions still in effect as of Sunday. Snow and Rain swept Montana over the last several days and prompted some counties to lift all fire restrictions.
The Helena Independent Record reports some areas still under level 1 restrictions are now allowing an exemption for campfires in permanently established metal rings on state, federal and tribal lands. These locations include Broadwater, Cascade and Glacier counties. Some areas of Jefferson, Lewis & Clark, Meagher, Powell, Teton, and Toole counties also have the exemption.
