MISSOULA, Mont. -

Fire officials with Missoula County Fire Protection Association have moved fire danger to "High" starting tomorrow.

Despite the rainfall Missoula received this morning, grasses and small branches continue to dry out, causing fire danger to rise.

The weather throughout the rest of the week will see temperatures in the lower 90's, leaving grasses and branches to dry out a few days or hours after a storm.

Officials are urging those who burned this spring to make sure their burn piles are fully extinguished and campfires should be cold to the touch before leaving them.

Open burning remains closed in Missoula County.
