Updated – Grass Fire Started by Lightning Hitting Power Line [AUDIO]

UPDATE - Saturday, August 31, 10:30 a.m.

According to a news release from the Missoula City Fire Department, the grass fire Friday night was caused by a lightning strike that struck a Northwest Energy power line. It appears that the lightning struck a cross member near the top of the pole and caught fire, dropping embers to the ground, catching the grass on fire.

The fire is estimated to be about 80 acres in size, and was 100% contained, however, crews will remain on the scene throughout the day to mop up any hot spots.

UPDATE – Evacuations Lifted on Firestone Flats Fire [AUDIO]

UPDATE - 4:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 30

Fire Information officer Brian LaMoure at the Firestone Flats fire burning on the Flathead Reservation said residents will be allowed back into their homes as of 5:00 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

"The really good news is that, conditions permitting, that we're going to allow the residents back into their homes tonight at 5 o'clock," LaMoure said. "They'll have to check in at what they call the Wye, but they're also waiting because we're grading the road, which is making the residents very happy, as well. The fire's heavy equipment has been going over that road and it needed some improvement to get them in and out quickly and safely, but we're pleased to be allowing residents back into their homes, conditions permitting."

LaMoure said the fire is now about 40% contained, still at around 1750 acres, and said the costs associated with the fire are now above $750,000. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, although there has been no lightning in the area for over a week.
