Just one evacuation order remains in effect for the Paradise Complex fires, which at last word, had torched more than 2,200 acres south of Livingston.
The largest of the four blazes is the Emigrant fire, eight miles south of Emigrant.
It has burned more than 2000 acres.
Fire crews conducted back-burns Monday, which helped created a spectacular plume of smoke as afternoon winds kicked in.
But, fire officials said, much of blaze burned toward the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness.
On Tuesday, crews are continuing heavy air tanker drops to try to keep the fire from turning south toward private land.
There are several closures in effect associated with the Paradise Complex, including the Tom Miner Basin and Campground.
A public meeting will be held tonight in Bozeman at the Montana Weatherization Training Center at 7:30 p.m.
