BILLINGS * The Billings Fire Department is on the scene near Ironwood after a rescue call came in around 12:30 Sunday afternoon. The incident occurred near what is known as the “Billings Castle,” which is located at 5650 Canyon Woods Drive.

Battalion Chief Jason Lyon said crews located a female mountain biker who reportedly fell about 50 feet. Crews had some complications getting to her due to the remote nature of the incident. Three Billings fire engines, rescue, and the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office responded.

Lyon said she is in stable condition.

We will update with further information.
