ROUNDUP, MT - The human-caused Wilson fire continues to burn southeast of Roundup today.
About 150 firefighters are getting a better understanding of the blaze, Sunday, as it reached an estimated 4,100 acres.
Fire officials have evacuated more than 50 residents with 100 more on pre-evacuation notice.
Currently it is only five percent contained - but firefighters say they are confident in lines built around the fire today.
Highway 87 south is still closed to through traffic.
Ground crews received help through the air as crews dropped water and retardant throughout the afternoon.
So far no primary structures have been lost - but several subdivisions surround the blaze.
While lower temperatures at night help - wind gusts are still at 5 to 10 mph.
