Large fire activity continues in California and Arizona, where nine large fires are currently burning. Firefighters in ten other states, from Florida to Alaska, are making good progress toward containment goals on eleven other large fires.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fireworks on July 4th account for two out of five of all reported fires, which is more than any other fire cause. Serious injuries and millions of dollars of property are lost every year from wildfires sparked by fireworks. Enjoy your Fourth of July and please remember, fireworks are prohibited on public lands.

The National Fire News will be updated again on Tuesday, July 5. Please read the Incident Managment Situation Report and Inciweb for information on current wildfires.

Weather: Scattered showers and thunderstorms will form over the Southwest, the Great Basin, and in the southern and central Rockies under a weakening ridge in the west. A cold front will approach the Northwest Coast. A trough in the east will usher in a cold front through the region, producing scattered thunderstorms along the East Coasts, Gulf Coasts, and in the Midwest. Temperatures will remain quite high in the west and south, but some cooling will begin in the far Northwest. The Plains, Midwest, and New England will remain mild.
