Cabin destroyed by fire near Canyon Ferry - KRTV News in Great Falls, Montana

Cabin destroyed by fire near Canyon Ferry

Posted: Updated:

A fire destroyed a cabin near Canyon Ferry on Tuesday morning.

The fire was reported at 8 a.m. by someone from across the lake.

At this point, there have been no reported injuries.

Tri-Lakes Fire Chief Bob Drake says the cabin, located off of West Shore Drive near Canyon Ferry, is a complete loss.

Drake said the fire presented several challenges.

Access to the windy narrow West Shore drive proved difficult for firefighters.

Crews were concerned about contamination of invasive species to the lake so they had to bring in water from a storage tank about a mile away.

There was also concern of potential wildfires because of the dry grass and trees in the area so DNRC had to do water drops.

Drake says the cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

We will update you if we get more information.
