The Helena Fire Department says that although the fire scars at Nob Hill park will be there for a while, damage from the fire was minimal thanks to the efforts of multiple responding agencies. Fire crews from nine agencies hit the fire quickly after it was reported Saturday afternoon. Mutual aid that assisted Helena Fire included Montana City, East Valley, Baxendale, West Valley, Tri-lakes, the U.S. Forest Service, the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation and even a strike team from New Jersey that are in-state right now assisting with Montana’s fire season. Helena Assistant Fire Chief Mike Chambers says that were it not for those additional teams and resources the Nob Hill Fire could have been much worse.
