April Fire Danger Low Thanks To Cold Wet Weather
ST. CLOUD — A cold and wet month of April has been a benefit when it comes to wildfires here in central Minnesota.
Jean Goad is an Information Officer with Minnesota’s Interagency Fire Center in Grand Rapids. She says the wildfire danger has been low so far this spring but that could change with the weather. Goad says that could change quickly if we get a stretch of warm, dry and windy days.
Goad says April usually has the most wildfires as the snow melts and the grass is dry but the cold and wet April has stifled most of the fire danger to this point.
