This summary page is for current month lightning fires. For past month fire information, please visit the 'News' Tab.
Lightning storms moving through the area on July 14, 15 and 22 ignited several fires. Forest officials and firefighters closely monitor and respond to these fires and aerial reconnaissance flights will often be used to determine potential growth activity of the fires and develop appropriate response activity. The reconnaissance flights are part of our normal operating plan after lightning storms.
