But for a small community living outside of Williston, the impact of one wildfire burning in our area hits close to home.
Last night the U.S. Forest Service suggested some homes should be evacuated because the Bad Land Fire, burning just outside of Williston in the Goethe State Forest.
The fire first ignited in April and was caused by lightening.
The Forest Service has conducted back burns and plowed line to help control the blaze that jumped containment lines Sunday evening.
So far no homes are under mandatory evacuations but twelve homes are sitting with firetrucks and firefighters in their yards on standby.
If an evacuation becomes necessary homeowners can go to the First Baptist Church in Bronson and meet with the American Red Cross.
