The Bozeman community was devastated this week as a wildfire started in the Bridger Mountains and swept through Bridger Canyon destroying many structures and burning more than 7,000 acres. While it has been a scary time for our community, it has been incredible to see how the Bozeman community has rallied around those fighting the fire and those affected by it. Photo Credit: Tom Rath.
