Potlatch Corporation issues burn ban on Potlatch timber land

LEWISTON, ID - With all the wildfires around the northwest, it's no surprise that a large corporation announced Wednesday that effective immediately no campfires or open burning are allowed on its property in the state of Idaho.

Potlatch Corporation has issued a burn ban on all 791,000 acres of timber country they own in northern Idaho. Due to extreme fire danger the ban will remain in effect until conditions improve. Potlatch leaders urges all visitors to use extreme caution while in Idaho's wilderness.
