Fire danger moved to “Moderate,” as of July 3 in Missoula County

MISSOULA — Fire officials with the Missoula County Fire Protection Association (MCFPA) have moved the fire danger to “Moderate” starting today, Thursday July 3.

The weather forecast calls for continued hot dry days with temperatures in the 90’s this week and next. With a Holiday weekend upon us MCFPA are asking people to be “Fire Smart” as they recreate in the outdoors this weekend.

People who burned this spring should go check on their piles to make sure they are fully extinguished. Everyone should be sure campfires are cold to the touch before leaving them. Open burning (debris burning) remains open in Missoula County. While there are no other restrictions at this time, we urge people to be careful with fires and double check before recreating in Montana. Visit for more information.

The MCFPA would like to thank the residents of Missoula County for being cautious while enjoying the outdoors and appreciate your cooperation. Find more on the web, at: and like us on Facebook for instant updates throughout the week.
