1600 strikes over W. MT and Idaho

lionmerchant — Tuesday April 24, 2012

More than 1,600 lightning strikes peppered central Idaho and western Montana on Monday, prompting state officials to schedule a patrol flight to scout for new wildfires.

Initial attack crews responded to two lighting starts Monday morning, one near Florence and the other near Seeley Lake.

The drying conditions led the Missoula County Fire Protection Association to raise the fire danger to high effective today.
