Friday June 12 Wildfire Update
Given recent news about the start of this summer's wildfire season, here's today's morning briefing on current wildfires and potential for new fires. While there are several new fires, none so far are major size. This daily briefing can be found at the Northwest Interagency Coordination Center website at http://gacc.nifc.gov/nwcc/, which has a link on the left side of this blog under "hot links". Also several maps at this website show when there are major wildfires around the state. The other best link to check is Inciweb, also at the left http://inciWeb.nwcg.gov/.
