U.S. Forest Service officials say the Miner Paradise Complex fire is 75 percent contained after burning approximately 11,834 acres.
Stage 1 fire restrictions are no longer in effect for any areas on the Gallatin National Forest and Park County's burn ban is no longer in effect.
Fire officials posted their final update for the fire until closures change, or if fire activity changes significantly.
The fires, Sheep Fire in Tom Miner Basin, North Eightmile along Gallatin Crest, Emigrant Fire eight miles south of Emigrant, are being manned by a 30 person crew.
Forecasted weather calls for scattered showers and a few thunderstorms with wetting and locally heavy rain as a weak, slow-moving low pressure system moves into the area. The activity will die down a bit overnight, then reform with greater coverage on Saturday. Burn scars could experience debris flows if cells move over them. The clouds and moisture will keep humidities elevated, especially on Saturday.
