According to the Billings Gazette, Yellowstone County will rescind rules put in place to prevent wildfires on Friday.  Stage 1 fire restrictions, which prohibit campfires, except within developed recreation sites, fire rings or improved sites, and limit outdoor smoking, are no longer necessary as temperatures cool and rainfall returns, according to a county commissioners resolution.  The move also overturns a burn ban.

Wildfires significantly affects forested areas in Western Montana this year, but the eastern part of the state was spared from the large rangeland fires it experienced in 2017.
