Fire Danger is HIGH on the Flathead Indian Reservation
News from The Division of Fire
RONAN — The Division of Fire officials want to update the public on the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes fire danger. The Flathead Indian Reservations fire danger is at High.
Although no restrictions are in place at this time, the extended forecast calls for temperatures in the high 80s, vegetation is beginning to cure. This type of fine, dead fuel is the primary carrier of fire in the wildland, and when fires get established in this fuel type they can quickly spread out of control.
The Division of Fire would like to stress to the public the importance of fire safety while out working and recreating in the outdoors.
Please do your part to ensure there is ‘One Less Spark’ as a result of your outdoor activities in the heat of the afternoon.
If a small fire becomes a full-blown forest fire, it could lead to arson charges, fines and even the bill for all fire-caused costs.
For any questions call The Division of Fire at 406-676-2550.
