On Friday the fire restrictions at FWP properties in Park and Gallatin Counties will be lifted - this includes fishing access sites and wildlife management areas.
Stage 1 restrictions were put into place Aug. 30 because of prevailing dry and mild conditions. The restrictions include a ban on open fires (campfires included), and constraints on smoking.
Despite recent precipitation, FWP urges continued caution related to the use of fire on all public lands in southwest Montana. Grasses and lands are still susceptible to fire no matter the date on the calendar.
