BOISE -- With hot temperatures in the forecast for this Fourth of July weekend, Boise National Forest managers are urging you to be aware of increasing fire dangers.

They've passed along these reminders:

  • Be very careful with campfires or any activity that might produce sparks.
  • It is illegal to possess or use fireworks on public lands - law enforcement officers will have extra patrols through the holiday weekend.
  • Violators could face a fine of up to $5,000 and six months in jail, and also could be held responsible for firefighting costs.
