Current Wildfire Danger for Summit County is HIGH.

Fires can start from most accidental causes; however, with the exception of lightning fires, the number of ignitions is generally low. Fires in open grassland or meadows will burn briskly and spread rapidly on windy days. Timber fires spread slowly to moderately fast. The average fire is of moderate intensity, although heavy concentrations of fuel may burn with more intensity. Short-distance spot fires may occur. Fires are generally not likely to become serious and control is relatively easy.
