Officials with the Custer Gallatin National Forest said.

The Shedhorn Fire hasn't grown much in the past week due to favorable weather and the hard work of firefighters. In the latest update, officials estimated the fire at 75 acres. The cause of the Shedhorn Fire is under investigation. 50 firefighters and two helicopters are working to contain the fire. A temporary flight restriction is in place.
