The fire that started today, between Frenchtown and Missoula, was sparked by a lawn mower going over a rock:

A new wildfire burning just east of Frenchtown and west of Missoula has grown to over 550 acres and prompted several evacuations. The fire – started by a mower sparking on a rock this afternoon – has forced homeowners between Mill Creek and Fred Lane to evacuate as firefighters attack the blaze from the ground and the air.

We could be looking at a pretty serious fire season in Western Montana. A cool, rainy June means more growth that will dry out and become potential fuel.
