5:00 pm September 7, 2020 Monday - Lightning storms moving through the area ignited several fires during July and August. Forest officials and firefighters closely monitor and respond to these fires with aerial reconnaissance flights used to determine potential growth activity of the fires and develop appropriate response activity. The reconnaissance flights are part of our normal operating plan after lightning storms.
