The Elk Hill fire is actively burning near lower North Fork Sun River, southeast of the Forest Service cabin on Cabin Creek.
Three helicopters are available to assist on-the-ground efforts when needed. Fire personnel will focus on structure protection of the Cabin Creek cabin.
The fire appears to have been started by a warming or campfire, but is under investigation.
