The rainfall from Wednesday morning has reduced the fire threat in the Missoula area significantly.

As of 12:01 a.m. Friday morning, stage 1 fire restrictions have been lifted in the Lolo National Forest, the Pintler Ranger District, Sanders County and, of course, Missoula County. The fire danger level in these areas has also dropped from “extreme” to “very high” and now “high” in the last four days.

According to Missoula County Fire Protection Association spokesman Chris Johnson “a debris and pile burning ban is still in place.” It’s also important to note that Ravalli county is still under stage 1 restrictions.

Johnson says that more jurisdictions will rescind stage 1 restrictions, “as precipitation and seasonal conditions return.” There is, however, no rain forecast for the immediate future.
