Critical fire weather will challenge firefighters Wednesday on the Rosebud Fire. According to a press release from the Montana DNRC, a Type 1 Incident Management Team will brief in Red Lodge Wednesday evening and assume control as early as Wednesday evening.
The fire is about six miles southwest of Roscoe, and it remains at an estimated 800-1,000 acres in size.
The Rosebud Fire continues to grow, burning actively in grass, sage, and timber (douglas fir and ponderosa pine). The fire, which originated on private land, has burned onto the Custer National Forest.
Many local area fire departments are responding, along with the Forest Service and the Montana DNRC.
More information will be released as it becomes available.
