Very High Fire Danger

Fire Danger Level: High

When the fire danger is “high”, fire can start easily from most causes and small fuels (such as grasses and needles) will ignite readily. Unattended campfires and brush fires are likely to escape. Fire will spread easily, with some area of high intensity burning on slopes or concentrated fuels. Fire can become serious and difficult to control unless they are put out while they are still small.
