BOZEMAN- Details are limited as a fire just broke out around 7 pm Friday west of Norris. Thunderstorms did pass through this area at the time of the fire start so lightning is the most likely cause but no official word so far.

Viewer Jeff Krogstad sent the above video and reports erratic winds with the passing thunderstorms is allowing this fire to burn out of control.

Fire crews are on scene and Krogstad said a bulldozer is cutting a line and additional support was called in for a water drop.

This is a developing story.
