FNF Predicts Fire Season to Be Delayed

Posted: Updated:

KALISPELL - Flathead National Forest Officials predict this upcoming fire season will be  delayed due to high levels of moisture across the region.

They say a normal fire season will occur toward the end of summer, burning up to 200,000 acres of land. Fire Service Area Manager Lincoln Chute said it's important for the public to prepare now in case of a life-threatening situation.

"Doing some defensible space around your home, liming up some trees, cleaning the gutters out the valleys, make sure its not pine mill raking out from underneath your decks all of that kind of stuff. If there is a fire its going to make the likely hood of your home surviving much higher," Chute said.

For people who plan to set off fireworks for the 4th of July, FNF Officials ask that you water down the area to help prevent the spread of a wildfire.
