Northwest Prescribed Fire Information:

Lists fires (of any size) that singly utilize Monitor, Confine or Point Zone Protection suppression strategies, or use Multiple Suppression Strategies (which may also include a Full Suppression component).

Northwest Fire Potential Summary
The potential for new large fires is holding steady across the geographic area. Winds will decrease over the east slopes of Washington Cascades and elsewhere across the region. Lightning is not expected to be a factor in large fire potential through the Independence Day holiday. Fire danger indices will resume rising, more rapidly east of the Cascades
