The American Red Cross of Montana responded to the recent grass fires that torched over 16,000 acres on the Blackfeet Reservation near the town of Browning. The fires broke out nearly a week ago. Investigators believe a downed power line and a spark from a chimney caused the two wildfires. Montana Red Cross CEO Rod Kopp explains what their organization did to help with the efforts.

The fires were 100 percent contained Monday. Authorities say fires forced the evacuation of about 20 homes in a small community known as the Boarding School and several homes east of Browning were also evacuated.
