High Fire Danger

Timberlake Fire Chief, Jack Krill announced this morning, a ban on all outdoor burning. He also suspended all existing burn permits. Hot dry weather has settled in and more is expected as temperatures climb close to 100 degrees as the week progresses. The danger index is expected to go from high to very high, then extreme between now and the week-end.

The haze that was over us yesterday was due to a large forest fire burning in British Columbia. The wind has shifted, but there is still a light haze over North Idaho.

As an aside, paving is going on in the Garwood to Hayden corridor and traffic is backed up for miles. It might pay to go west to Hwy 41 to avoid the miles long parking lot.
