Montana Wildfire Forces Resort Evacuation

A ski resort in southern Montana has been temporarily evacuated as dozens of firefighters battle a wildfire that has expanded to 700 acres. Due to strong winds, the wildfire grew, and as a result authorities ordered the evacuation of Red Lodge Mountain Resort. According to officials, the fire is believed to have started on private property around noon on Saturday and then winds of about 35 to 50 miles per hour fanned the flames into the Custer National Forest.
