Fires in Missoula likely sparked by train

MISSOULA- A passing train likely sparked a series of fires on Wednesday, according to firefighters.

Firefighters were dispatched to Rollercoaster Road and Deschamps Lane just after 3:30 p.m. and at least three different fires along the train tracks were visible as firefighters worked to put out the flames.

The Missoula Rural Fire District, Frenchtown Rural Fire Department and the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation responded to the surrounding area and had a difficult time accessing one of the fires.

No buildings were threatened and the exact cause of the fires remain under investigation.
