Wildfire news was a bit light today (though lightning strikes in Northern California could be altering that situation shortly), with more news coming from the international scene today. First up, a story about Utah wildfires nearing containment, followed by the continuing tragedy of the S-61 crash investigation in Shasta and reports of lightning strikes (again) in that area. On the international front, the Mediterranean region is once again heating up, with some arrests for arson in Spain as 5,000 hectares (get out your book of metric conversions) burned in Portugal over the last six months and Greece has more fires break out.
