This morning around 2 am Dutton VFR was paged to a wildfire east of of the Collins exit. While in route the page was cancelled. While heading home the Dutton Fire Chief noticed a fire south of Dutton. On the ridge so there was an immediate page out for a second wildfire. Only in Montana can you fight wildfires between the rain and thunderstorms.
We have received a report of a possible wildfire east of Ulm.
Just after 9:30 p.m. on Monday, August 22, 2022, Denise Fogelson shared the photo above with MTN News.
She said: "There is a large fire by Square Butte caused by lightning. Picture taken off our back porch in Ulm."
There are some scattered thunderstorms with lightning in the area.
We have not yet been able to confirm the location or size of the fire.
We will update you if we get more information.
