MISSOULA — The fire danger level in Missoula County has been lowered to “moderate” effective immediately.

However, fall burning -- prescribed wildland and essential agriculture burning – remains closed at this time.

“Caution is still warranted with any spark right now—but especially when breezy and dry conditions are expected,” warns Kristin Mortenson, DNRC-SWLO Fire Prevention Specialist.

Fire officials caution that conditions are still dry overall and in moderate fire danger fires will still start from most accidental causes.
