The Deep Draw Fire was first reported just after 8pm on Friday, August 12 and is burning in rugged terrain west of the Pryor Mountain area near the Carbon County - Big Horn County line. While there are a few ranches and cabins in the vicinity of the fire, no structures are immediately threatened. The forward rate of spread has been stopped. The fire received precipitation overnight which helped. Crews are working to complete and reinforce containment lines. Resources from Carbon County, the Montana Department of Natural Resources (MT-DNRC), BLM and the BIA are on scene.
