COLUMBUS, Mont. (AP) - A wildfire has destroyed two homes and three outbuildings in Stillwater County.

KULR-TV in Billings reports (https://bit.ly/1LqDidj ) that no one was hurt in the fire that started after noon Saturday about 5 miles west of Columbus and quickly spread because of strong winds.

About 80 homes were evacuated.

The fire burned about 700 acres before it was mostly contained by firefighters with the help of aircraft dropping water.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
