C-PTPA crews responded to three fires, two were human caused on June 26, and one was lighting caused on June 29.

The two human caused fires were one-tenth of an acre each, and were in the Orofino and Elk River areas.

The lone lightning fire was in the Boehls area and resulted in half an acre of ground fire.

All of the fires were suppressed and are currently in monitor status until declared out.

As we celebrate Independence Day, we would like to remind everyone to please be safe in your activities.
