The middle states dry conditions within the Dakotas will raise the chances for giant fires there too.
The danger level will probably go back to normal in many areas in September, but forecasters say California could stay at risk in to the fall due to drought.
Forecasters say the specter of wildfires will stay full of Los Angeles and also the Southwest this month due to persistent drought and since summer time rains might not be as consistent as always.
