High winds, relatively warm temperatures, and very dry conditions have all combined to create and fuel wildfires in western NC. These are not the massive and out-of-control wildfires you see in California, but they are destructive and should be taken seriously. There have been several fires today. The pictures below are from the ire in the Boone area. Open burning is not recommended right now. Even small campfires can spread embers and start a larger scaled fire within minutes. Take extreme caution! The good news is, fire fighters should be able to contain them tomorrow.

Terrible. The photos show the destruction, thats probably preventable with some common sense.

Are the trout getting beat up again?

Yep, common sense would have helped. One spark is all it takes in these kinds of conditions.

Not overly worried about the trout right now, but if the fires spread considerably, they may be threatened...
