This summer’s fire season could be as bad as the wildfire season of 2015, which was the worst season in our state’s history, according to an analyst with the Department of Natural Resources.
The sun may be out but with no rain in the forecast this is not what the DNR wants to see.
“You know, we started out with a really dry Spring and we haven’t had much of that catch-up moisture at all,” said Vaughn Cork, a fuel analyst with DNR.
Not to mention that we had those historically hot days last week.
This all adds up to a potentially dangerous and wide spread fire season for Washington, according to Cork.
