As monstrous wildfires continue to burn through the forests of the western U.S. and Canada, conditions for potential wildfires in Pennsylvania are rated as low and “ignitions are unlikely.”

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources maintains daily, online Forest Fire Danger maps that currently are green across the entire state,
