Officials Urge Bear Lake Visitors To Use Caution After Fires Involving RV, Boat & Dumpster
BEAR LAKE COUNTY, Idaho — Park officials are reminding Bear Lake visitors to use caution during hot and dry weather after emergency crews responded to multiple fires over the last few days.
“With two of these incidents, we were extremely lucky that they didn’t spread into a large wildfire. Please be safe while recreating and hope to see you soon,” officials with Idaho’s Bear Lake State Park said.
Crews responded to a fire that broke out in a dumpster and two blazes that engulfed a boat and RV between Monday and Thursday.
Officials said to check boats for any mechanical issues, ensuring the vessel’s “ventilation system works correctly, you have run your blower for two minutes before starting the engine and your fire extinguisher is up to date.”
Travelers should check campers and RVs to make sure chains are not dragging, their propane tanks have been turned off and the vehicle’s brakes are working.
Visitors should avoid discarding hot charcoal into any trash receptacle before it has been fully extinguished.
