This is the first time I ever remember seeing this on the National Weather Service site. I know they recently put a test message on (thread above). Is there anyone from this area that can tell us what is going on? From the radar it doesn't seem to be related to any storms right now.

This looks like the reason:

In neighboring Montana, a new fire burning in a subdivision sent fire crews and residents of 60 homes scrambling, said Ken Mesch of Stillwater County disaster and emergency services.

There was no estimate on the size of the blaze, between Columbus and Park City in south-central Montana

It's a bit north of Yellowstone. And it's just part of a county. I don't know what to think. ????

By the way, thanks soooo much for replying. It's the first time I've started a thread. I'm just glad I didn't screw it up too bad and got someone to reply.

I was thinking the same and was checking out the national fire news, if anyone is familiar with Montana they will be able to see if any of these fires are in the vicinity of the evacuation.

Thanks guys. I was looking all over the news for some idea. Should have thought of that first. NOAA changes things and it freaks me out. Guess I'm not good with change.

There are quite a few fires in Montana,

I did find an article pertaining to this particular evacuation notice and posting it here for closure.


New fire burns through subdivision between Columbus and Park City...

COLUMBUS, Mont. (AP) A new fire in south-central Montana burned through a 60-home subdivision late this afternoon without destroying any homes.

The fire just east of Columbus started at about 4 p.m. near Interstate 90 and prompted evacuation orders for the Pine Crest subdivision on Allen Creek Road.

Jeff Bollman with the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation says the 250- to 300-acre blaze quickly passed through the grass and trees of the subdivision, and no homes were lost.


Thank goodness that the homes were spared.

Thank you, JacKatMtn, for following up. I agree, it's great that these homes weren't destroyed. I don't know if I'm just more aware, but this year seems to have been a bad one for fires.
