Even with the recent rain and cooler temperatures, fire danger still remains very high. With the rain has come lightning and the Kalispell Area had approximately 20 new fires over the last few days. Fine fuels have been moistened by the rain but the larger fuels, such as branches and down trees, are still very dry and can ignite quickly and burn intensely. The Kalispell Area fire restrictions group would like to thank the public for supporting and complying with Stage 1 fire restrictions that are in effect in many counties.
