Belgrade Brush fire
BOZEMAN, Mont. -

A brush fire broke out north of Belgrade Friday afternoon.

It started in the area of Dry Creek Rd. and firefighters on the scene tell us it could burn as much as 80 acres.

NBC Montana's Eric Turcio is on the scene and tells us fire crews from across the valley, are working to contain the blaze. 

He says fire departments are limiting access to some roads in the area.

One official tells us with the expected winds set to impact the area, they'll spend all night monitoring the fire.

We will continue to update this story as we learn more, and we will have more information on the News at Ten.
