Here's the latest Montana fire news, as of Wednesday morning.
Finally, a reprieve: Alice Creek fire lines held well during Tuesday's red flag conditions. The fire area is not under a red flag warning Wednesday for the first time in several days. It is 10 percent contained.
Waterton fire: Canada's fierce Kenow fire forced the closing of the Chief Mountain border crossing and threatened the historic Prince of Wales Hotel in Waterton Lakes National Park. Although the Waterton Lakes townsite appears intact, according to Parks Canada, a video widely shared on social media showed the park's visitor center gutted by the fire.
Glacier evacuations: Though the weather outlook is optimistic across parts of the state, evacuations were issued Wednesday for areas of Glacier National Park, including Apgar campground and village and portions of West Glacier. Strong winds created by a cold front are cited as reasons for the increased fire danger.
More aggressive approach: Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke this week directed all land managers and park superintendents to be more aggressive in cutting down small trees and underbrush to prevent wildfires as the smoke-choked West faces one of the worst fire seasons in a decade.
