From 9News.com (Anastasiya Bolton):
Justin Whitesell of the Wildland Fire Management Section at the Division of Fire Prevention and Control is also watching the conditions.
“‘We’re average’ still means that we have potential for wild land fires, that doesn’t mean we’re out of the woods,” Whitesell said. “You can still have a High Park Fire even though it’s showing average. You’re going to see the average number of fires.”
Firefighters and meteorologists try to predict how bad the season will be.
“It’s a crap shoot, it really is,” Whitesell said. “We all gear up almost the same way every year.”
