The fire details line will be staffed from 8:00 am up until 8:00 pm until further notice. Extreme dryness, high winds and the largea great deal of little fires make it extremely difficult to have precise info at all times. Fire information officers staffing the lines will supply the most approximately date details offered at the time but request the public’s persistence and understanding as they work to constantly upgrade and verify their information with firemans in the field.

Throughout north Idaho there are more than 50 known wildfires presently burning, mainly at higher elevations and in remote areas. Many of the fires are less than an acre but may have the potential to grow as forecasted winds and dry conditions continue. At this time there are no evacuations ordered or planned, however members of the public should understand the severe fire danger and strategy ahead in case of emergency.
