(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – A fire danger watch is now in effect for much of eastern Idaho through this evening. Officials with the National Weather Service say wind gusts in excess of 35 miles per hour coupled with considerably low humidity will make it easy for human-caused fires to start and spread. They caution that agricultural areas are especially at risk, since dry stubble fields left over from grain harvest are prime targets for accidents and arsonists.
