GREAT FALLS — On Thursday morning, Lincoln Volunteer Fire Rescue said that the fire has been controlled and lined.

The agency posted on Facebook: "We got off the fire before midnight and everything was good. You may see some little smokes here and there but they will all be well interior. With the amount of rain we got since early this morning there shouldn't be any activity on it. Only a few stumps smoking, but again, it's all well in the black and safe. DNRC will patrol it daily for a while."

There are no reports of any injuries or damaged structures.
