The lightning-caused fire was burning about 15 miles south of Big Timber. It was ignited on Aug. 22, then wind gusts pushed the fire to higher elevations.

Homes in the Susie Creek area remained evacuated Monday, according to fire information reports.

The fire has burned more than 281 square miles.
