Fire restrictions rescinded in several southwest Montana counties

Saturday Oct. 23rd, 2021

Fire restrictions have been updated for properties managed by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in several counties. 

Fire restrictions have been rescinded for FWP properties in Beaverhead, Silver Bow, Madison, Jefferson, Broadwater, and Lewis and Clark counties. These counties were previously in Stage-1 fire restrictions. 

Stage-1 fire restrictions at FWP sites ban campfires except where specifically exempted and allow smoking only in vehicles and areas 3 feet in diameter that are cleared of flammable materials. Gas or propane stoves that can be turned on and off are still allowed.  

Fireworks are always prohibited at FWP sites.
