The Yogo Fire is now 100 percent contained, however, due to snow on the fire, we are unable to check for hazardous conditions, and therefore the Area Closure will remain in place for the foreseeable future.
On the afternoon of Saturday, October 3 a fire was reported on the Judith Musselshell Ranger District. The Yogo Fire is located in the Little Belt Mountains and its origin is about 1.5 miles south of Yogo Peak. The Helena-Lewis & Clark National Forest is working in close coordination with the Montana Department of Natural Resources & Conservation and Judith Basin County for planning closures and pre-evaction notices for potential impacts to any private land holders.
