Firefighters will return Tuesday morning to Flathead Lake's Bird Island where they're battling a wildfire.

C.T. Camel with CSKT's Division of Fire tells MTN News the blaze is about two acres.

Three helicopters were handling the fire Monday, however, they returned to base when it became too dark.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell is asking boaters to please stay clear of the area around the island as helicopters were having trouble drawing water.
