A good night of weather helped hold back the Indian Creek Fire near Sheridan Friday.

The fire was reported around 7:45 p.m. Thursday and appeared to be about 150 acres and growing, but the wind died down and the relative humidity increased overnight.

By 11 a.m. Friday, Forest Service reported the fire was 112 acres, with 55 people fighting the blaze.

Spokesperson Leona Rodreick with the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest told The Montana Standard that an incident management team that had been ordered to help battle the blaze had been called off.

“We got a better handle on it,” Rodreick said.

Rodreick said the lightning-caused blaze burned in grass, brush and forest.

As of Friday morning, no structures were threatened and no evacuations were planned.
