The Trail Creek Fire started on July 8, 2021 approximately 20 miles West of Wisdom, Montana, as the result of lightning. Fire crews are exploring options for constructing indirect containment lines, while providing structure protection on existing cabins and sites at the National Park Service Big Hole Battlefield. The Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest moved into Stage 2 Fire Restrictions. Campfires and stove fires (including charcoal barbecues and grills) are prohibited in the area. Propane stoves, grills or lanterns that include shut-off valves are permitted when used in an area at least 3 feet or more from flammable material. Smoking, unless in a vehicle, a building, or an area three feet in diameter cleared of vegetation, is also restricted.
