Heavy private, state and federal
patrols in Washington have so far
stopped with small damage the fires !
set in green timber by lightning and
campers. The greatest difficulty has
been with fires in slashings and old
burns which acquired headway al
most instantaneously and threatened
adjoining timber. One in an old
burn west of Mt. St. FKlen and one
near Pc Ell which burned approxi
mately a section of timber were the
most serious Washington fires in
August, but all authorities agree
that the recent dry winds have

Idaho has had no had fires and
weather conditions are so favorable
that the timber owners' associations,
which have had heavy patrols since
May. are rapidly reducing their
forces. The Coeur d" Alene district,
which suffered heavily in ISIO, had
about 50 small fires in August but
they wore handled so promptly that
