Wildfire Danger is VERY HIGH, campfire restrictions are in place

WILDFIRE DANGER IS VERY HIGH

When the fire danger is "VERY HIGH," fires will start easily from most causes. The fires will spread rapidly and have a quick increase in intensity, right after ignition. Small fires can quickly become large fires, and exhibit extreme fire intensity, such as long-distance spotting and fire whirls. These fires can be difficult to control and will often become much larger and longer-lasting fires.
