Firefighters spent Thursday and Friday morning building hand lines around three small fires in Madison County before a red flag warning set in on Friday afternoon.
Lightning sparked the three small wildfires in the Madison and Gravelly ranges when a thunderstorm rolled through the Madison Valley south of Cameron on Wednesday night.
Volunteer firefighters from Madison County led the initial attack, and crews from the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest Madison Ranger District took over command Thursday morning.
