Montana (KWWL) -

Typically, the sight of snow during the last few days of summer would make most of us cringe.

But not this year.

It's snowing in Montana and that's really good news.

Montana has been fighting wildfires for weeks. Those fires have burned about 800 square miles.

The snow won't put out the fires, but it could slow them down.
