BLM Lifts More Eastern Montana Fire Restrictions



MILES CITY, Mont. --- Fire restrictions on lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management in Carter and Fallon Counties are lifted.  Stage one fire restrictions remain in effect in Treasure County until further notice.

Conditions are still very dry, however, and hunters and other recreationists are reminded to take care not to start any unwanted fires. Keep your vehicle on the road, never leave a campfire unattended and smoke only in an enclosed vehicle or building, making sure to crush it out completely when you’re done.

Anyone who causes a wildland fire intentionally or through negligence will be held accountable for damage and suppression costs.

In burned areas, also be aware of loose soils and the potential for fire-weakened trees to fall.

To report wildfires, contact your local fire department, sheriff’s office or the BLM Miles City Interagency Fire Dispatch Center at (406) 233-2900.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
