Wild Fire Near Roundup Now at Over30,000 Acres [AUDIO]
The Delphia wild fire near Roundup that was reported on August 24 has grown to 30,000 acres. There is some good news and that is there is about 45% containment as of this morning. Northwestern Energy spokesperson, Claudia Rapkoch said that about 500 Northwestern Energy customers were without power over the weekend due to the fact that the fire burned a 50-kilovolt transmission line. The lighting caused fire has destroyed at least 20 buildings.
