BILLINGS — Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks has dropped restrictions on some fires at its fishing access sites and state parks in six south central Montana counties.
As of Friday, Sept. 29, 2017, fire restrictions in place since summer at fishing access sites and state parks in Yellowstone, Carbon, Big Horn, Stillwater, Sweet Grass and Golden Valley counties will no longer apply.
Restrictions on fires and smoking in Musselshell and Wheatland counties remain in place.
All fires are prohibited year-around on wildlife management areas. However, campfires are allowed in designated steel fire rings at state parks and FWP fishing access sites.
While recent rains wetted much of south central Montana, vegetation still is dry and fire easily could spread. FWP is asking all users to remain extremely careful with campfires and to avoid driving with a hot muffler in tall grass.
