FWP tighten fire restrictions in Stillwater County

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ ban campfires and restrictions on smoking and other activities at its properties in Stillwater County will get stricter starting Thursday, Sept. 7, because of wildfire danger.
FWP will follow the lead of Stillwater County commissioners and enter stage II fire restrictions. Stillwater County has been under stage I fire restrictions for several weeks.
FWP properties that will be affected in Stillwater County include the Buffalo Jump, Moraine, Castle Rock, Cliff Swallow, Absaroka, Jeffrey’s Landing, Whitebird, Swinging Bridge and Fireman’s Point fishing access sites along the Stillwater River south of Columbus as well as the Rosebud Isle fishing access site on the West Rosebud River and Indian Fort, Holmgren Ranch, Homestead Isle and Buffalo Mirage fishing access sites along the Yellowstone River.
Stage II fire restrictions ban campfires and restrict smoking to buildings, vehicles or areas cleared of flammable materials. They also prohibit operating internal combustion engines between 1 p.m. and 1 a.m. each day. People may use stoves that can be turned on and off.
The restrictions are in response to hot, dry weather that could increase the danger of human-caused wildfires. They will be in effect until further notice.
