High Fire Danger

With the fair amount of rain we received yesterday we will hopefully be out of High Fire Danger .  According to the DNR, High Fire Danger means a wildfire could ignite readily, spread rapidly, burn with high intensity and be difficult to control.  We’re hoping for some more rain because the ground is pretty dry in places, especially up on the ridges. There is basically no activity on the fire on Little Saganaga and there is still a Fire Ban in the BWCAW to help prevent another forest fire.  With the shorter days and longer nights there is more moisture in the cooler air.  Now if we all do a rain dance maybe we can enjoy an evening campfire in the Boundary Waters again soon.
