Fort Belknap Fire officials are investigating what caused a fire on the reservation on Thursday afternoon.
We're told the fire started around 3 p.m. north of Highway 2 about five miles east of Fort Belknap Agency.
Between 40 to 50 acres of land were burned, and as many as 60 bales of hay went up in flames.
It took fire crews nearly four hours to contain the fire.
Fire management officer Rick Weasel says the cause of the fire is still being investigated.
