Drought contributes to large number of wildfires
The Associated Press - July 14, 2017

BISMARCK, N.D. - The drought in North Dakota is contributing to a high number of wildfires across the state.

The state Department of Emergency Services says firefighters have battled nearly 200 wildfires since March. McKenzie County had the most fires with 18 since March.

KXMB-TV reports 15 counties didn't have any wildfires. Most of those counties are in the northeast part of the state. Fires have been reported every single day for the last 25 days.

The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows nearly three-fourths of the state in some stage of drought, up from about two-thirds last week.
