Fire Danger remains High in Missoula County - Outdoor burning remains closed
MISSOULA - Wildland fire officials with the Missoula County Fire Protection Association (MCFPA) determined to keep fire danger within Missoula County at high.
Recent days have seen lower temperatures and higher relative humidity but sunny and breezy conditions persist. Large fuels remain dry, so fire danger indices continue to run in the HIGH range. Because the threat of wildfire spreading on sunny, windy days, MCFPA member agencies have decided to keep outdoor burning by permit CLOSED in Missoula County.
Wildland fire agencies would like to extend a large “Thank You” to the residents of Missoula County for lessening the number of human-caused fires in the latter part of fire season. Outdoor burning by permit will resume after more rain falls and cool conditions enable that moisture to penetrate larger fuels. Campfires are allowed in most areas and hunters and campers are urged to make sure their warming fires are cold to the touch and dead-out before ever being left unattended.
