The Boise and Payette National Forests to the west have several active fires as well. This fire activity is contributing to the smoky haze on the Salmon-Challis National Forest and in the Salmon and Challis areas.
Currently, there are no active fires on the Salmon-Challis National Forest. Personnel on the Forest want to remind visitors while areas of the Salmon-Challis National Forest look green, fire danger is a concern and is currently has a “HIGH” rating.
Remember never leave a campfire unattended and always use enough water to put the fire completely out as campfires have the potential to cause a wildfire when not properly extinguished. Make sure your campfire is cold to the touch.
