RONAN, Mont. -

Crews are keeping a close eye on the Eagle Pass Fire, which is up to 10 acres in the Mission Mountain Range.

There are no ground crews on the blaze, though teams are monitoring it from the air with helicopters, as well as through cameras.

The fire is in a ridge north of Sheeps Head Mountain, southeast of Ronan. There are numerous homes at the bottom of the hill, though the fire is not currently a threat to them.
