TODAY IS A CLASS 4 FIRE DAY —

Class day 4 – Very High

Fires start readily and spread quickly. Spot fires are a constant danger and fire behavior is often erratic. Resistance to control is high, as is the potential for large fires. Site specific conditions and land management objectives may warrant prescribed burning by experts, but care must be taken to keep fire within boundaries.
