KALISPELL - Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) has announced that Big Arm State Park is reopening Sunday morning.

The park had been closed due to danger from the nearby Elmo 2 Fire that broke out on Friday evening.

However, FWP notes that Lake Mary Ronan State Park remains temporarily closed as the area remains under an evacuation notice.

The Elmo 2 Fire ignited in the Deep Draw area along Montana Highway 28 and had grown to 7,000 acres as of Saturday.
