On June 30th, a succession of thunderstorm systems moved through north-central Idaho bringing lots of lightning and very little precipitation. These thunderstorms resulted in numerous wildfires on the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests and the surrounding areas. The U.S. Forest Service, Idaho Department of Lands, Clearwater-Potlatch Timber Protective Association, Nez Perce Tribe, the Incident Management Teams and the Bureau of Land Management, are working together to prioritize resources between wildfires based on immediate threats to life and property.
The area has experienced extreme fire conditions this season. Prolonged drought (dry conditions), high temperatures, low relative humidity and dropping live fuel moisture have created conditions conducive for an unusually high number of lightning-caused wildfires and large fire growth after starts.
