KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - Firefighters are working to suppress a 30-acre wildfire in northern Montana.

Officials say the fire started Saturday in the Flathead National Forest near Glacier National Park at a gravel pit west of the North Fork of the Flathead River.

The fire is about 12 miles north of Columbia Falls and is burning in an area scorched in 2003.

Firefighters were aggressively attacking any spot fires starting in the national park.

Elsewhere in Montana, crews on Sunday responded to a small fire that reportedly started northeast of Livingston.
