VIDEO: Wildfire season in Idaho got underway a bit earlier than usual, due in part to Idaho’s drought conditions, which have led the Gem State to be at an above-normal risk for significant fires, according to the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC). NIFC predicted that the increased fire risk will last through September, peaking in July and August. The news conference included officials from the Bureau of Land Management, United States Forrest Service, Idaho Department of Lands and Idaho Firewise. All agencies are urging the public to help prevent wildfires and reduce risk during extremely dry conditions. To protect your home during this fire season the Idaho Firewise said people should remove debris from their property – that includes the gutter and below the deck.
