Fire north of Skyline

The good news is that nobody was hurt, and property damage seems to have been limited to a barn and possibly an outbuilding.

The bad news is that there was a fire.

More good news: Great Falls Fire Rescue, Black Eagle Volunteer Fire Department, and other emergency personnel did an amazing job, as always.

It was a bit scary in the first few minutes, coming nearly one year after last year’s huge (6,000 acre) “Vineyard Fire” that forced dozens of people to evacuate, but fortunately, this one was knocked down very quickly and didn’t spread.

Here’s an aerial view taken at about 8 p.m.

Here’s video from last year’s fire:
