Rocky Ford  WA-SPD-000430. ICT3. 12 miles east of Ritzville, WA. Start 7/9. Full Suppression. Cause: human.1,952 acres (-48). 75% containment. Grass/Brush. Sage-grouse habitat threatened. Tentative transition to ICT4 today. Reduction in acreage due to better mapping.

Northwest Fire Potential Summary
A weak system will bring a chance for widespread showers and thunderstorms today with another weak wave on Wednesday, with drier and warmer conditions on Thursday. Given the mild temperatures and chance of rain, the overall potential for large fires remains low across the Northwest, and begins to increase toward weeks end.
