All wildfire-related area closures have been lifted across the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest.

The closures were associated with Alice Creek, Blacktail, Crucifixion Creek, Park Creek, Scalp and Strawberry fires.

"Although these areas are open to the public, people need to be alert and careful due to the numerous snags and hazard trees that are results from the wildfire activity," the Forest Service said in a news release.

Trees and snags could be unstable and weak from the recent wildfires, especially in wind. Other hazards could include loose debris such as rocks or logs, burned-out stump holes, mud flows in areas without vegetation and several others.

Visitors are asked to take extra precautions while entering and spending time in recently burned areas across the forest, the Forest Service said.
