Two fires burning in Western Montana experienced moderate growth Tuesday night into Wednesday. Lolo National Forest spokesman Boyd Hartwig says the Butler Fire burning a few miles from the Frenchtown Pond is now up to 100 acres. The fire is burning in rugged terrain and does not currently post a threat to any homes or structures.

The Falls Point Fire is burning in the Seeley District, and the size of the fire has been revised downward to 200 acres. The Falls Point Fire is burning several miles from the Clearwater Junction. Hartwig says firefighters are preparing for a cold front moving through the area that may be accompanied by gusty winds. He says more hand-lines have been added to the Butler Fire to keep it from spreading.
