Six local fire department crews are working a 25-acre blaze burning north of Shepherd tonight.

Shepherd Assistant Fire Chief Carl Openshaw says the blaze likely sparked yesterday due to lightning near 21-Mile Road off Highway 87.

The Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation Firefighters are dropping buckets of water on the rugged terrain by helicopter.

At last word no structures are in immediate danger.
