Firefighters on the Flathead Indian Reservation are preparing to demobilize after making significant progress battling the Moss Ranch Fire southwest of Ronan.

As of July 29, the fire had burned approximately 5,310 acres along the Flathead River. The fire is 60 percent contained and C.T. Camel, fire prevention specialist for the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes Division of Fire, said he expects the entire blaze to be contained by the end of the week. About 170 firefighters are assigned to the fire but that number was expected to drop in the coming days.
