From CSKT Division of Fire 

RONAN — The Division of Fire officials want to update the public on the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes fire danger. The Flathead Indian Reservations fire danger is at High. Debris burning by permit is CLOSED for the fire season. 

Although no restrictions are in place at this time, the extended forecast calls for temperatures in the high 80s, vegetation is beginning to cure. This type of fine, dead fuel is the primary carrier of fire in the wildland, and when fires get established in this fuel type they can quickly spread out of control. 

The Division of Fire would like to stress to the public the importance of fire safety while out working and recreating in the outdoors.

The Flathead Indian Reservation is currently in High fire danger. Please do your part to ensure there is One Less Spark as a result of your outdoor activities in the heat of the afternoon. 

If a small fire becomes a full-blown forest fire, it could lead to arson charges, fines and even the bill for all fire-caused costs. 

Tremendous effort goes into preventive programs and information campaigns. Division of Fire officials want to stop human caused fires during this fire season

If you witness any suspicious acts or abandoning campfires please contact your local police or call 1-800-47-ARSON. It is an anonymous call and your identity will remain confidential.
