Fire danger across Franklin County and much of southeastern Idaho has increased from low to moderate during the past few weeks and conditions could get worse in coming weeks.
Scott Martin, Franklin County fire marshal, said as warmer temperatures spread throughout the region in the coming weeks, grass and brush and especially undergrowth from last year, when it was unusually wet, could turn tinder-dry.
Unless moist conditions develop, the area may be in trouble. Long-range predictions call for dry weather during the rest of June, July and August. Warm temperatures are also forecast, he said.
