1395 Acre Fire In Billings South Hills Contained
If you didn't see the fire on Friday evening you must have been out of town because the smoke took up most of the Billings sky. I was on my way home on I-90 W when it started to get really bad. The sky was black and I actually ended up having ash on my other car when I arrived home.
Luckily, the fire has been contained and no one was harmed. However, 1395 acres are scorched! Originally it was said that a combine had sparked the fire but after further investigation, it looks like lightning may have been the culprit. For the full story, with updates, click HERE.
