Northwest Heat and Drought Increases Fire Danger

2 Sep 2017, 3:41 pm

Temperatures continue to skyrocket from California to Montana.  Hot and dry conditions send places like Montana even deeper into drought, increasing their fire danger.

With a rainy start to the year in California, it has allowed vegetation to grow rapidly during the growing season.  Now, with a dry streak in The Golden State, all of that lush vegetation has dried and is perfect for fires to spark.

Although it might be perfect pool and barbecue weather this Labor Day Weekend, it is important to remember the dangers associated with grilling in a fire prone area.
