UPDATE: Wind driving fire on Fort Belknap


A wind-driven fire on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation that threatened livestock and homes still was burning Wednesday evening but was under control for the time being, said Byard Lamebull, acting fire management officer for Fort Belknap.

“It was really moving,” Lamebull said at 7:30 p.m. “There was nothing you could do but watch it when it first started.”

Fueled by high winds, the fire consumed about 2,000 acres burning in pastureland, alfalfa and CRP fields and cottonwood and willow trees in irrigation ditches, he said.
