The Lincoln District fire crew of the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest will be conducting prescribed fire operations Sunday and Monday south of Lincoln, officials said Sunday.

The burning will be north of Stemple Pass Road. Crews from the Idaho Panhandle National Forest and the Flathead National Forest will be assisting, officials said.

This prescribed fire has the potential to produce a plume of smoke visible from Helena, officials said.

Prescribed Fire Activity signs will be deployed along Stemple Pass Road.
