C-PTPA fire update

   There were no fires to report this week, according to Cameron Eck, Fire Program Manager for Clearwater-Potlatch Timber Protection Association (C-PTPA).

   “The area has been very fortunate concerning fire this summer,” he also mentions he is knocking on his wooden desk as he speaks. Clearwater residents haven’t always been so lucky. Planes are out looking, keeping their eyes open for smoke.

   The Clearwater region continues to remain in high risk of fire danger, and all burn permits are suspended until further notice.
