Interagency Fire Officials will continue to monitor conditions, and look closely at the number of human caused fire starts to determine if fire restrictions need to be ordered and put in place in the greater Flathead area.   

Since July 1 there has been a total of 86 reported wildfires in the area. While many were lightning caused, at least half of these were human caused.
