Nationally, 99 large fires have burned more than 1.7 million acres in 10 states. Large fire activity continues in Alaska where 70 large fires are burning. Many fires in Alaska were active yesterday and burned thousands of acres. Large fire activity picked up in Arizona where four new ones were reported. Firefighters contained five large fires yesterday.

You might think that building a home in the wildlands means you do not need to landscape. But keeping your home safe from wildland fire means paying special attention to landscaping. Use your imagination: the primary goal is to reduce flammable vegetation for at least thirty feet around your home. Carefully space trees and low growing plants, plant fire resistant shrubbery and flowers. Create walkways and separate your barbecue area. Firewise landscaping adds beauty and safety to your home in the wildlands.

Weather: Scattered showers and slightly cooler temperatures will move into Interior Alaska for the weekend followed by a return of warm temperatures early next week. Hot and dry conditions spread throughout the western U.S over the weekend as the four corners high builds in. Monsoonal moisture will spread northward through Arizona beginning on Monday and reach Idaho/ and the Pacific Northwest by Tuesday.
