In response to the continuing hot, dry weather conditions throughout Missoula, the Fire Protection Association raised the fire danger to EXTREME in all areas of the county today.This marks a move from VERY HIGH and is a measure of how dynamic Montana’s fire conditions are during the summer.

In EXTREME fire danger extra caution should be used while in wooded areas, a careless spark in these conditions can lead to a wildland fire start.Considering active fires burning in the Missoula County area, please use extra caution and watch for fire fighting vehicles in and along the road and river ways.
