Frequently, even if there is no rain, it can produce lightning.
And in the dry climate of my state that can start fires.
I spotted the smoke from this one on the other side of the Bradshaw Mountains from us yesterday evening.
It has been named the Cellar Fire and it began Sunday from a lightning strike.
It was a small 5 acre fire then but by yesterday it had grown to 8,000 acres.
So be careful out there, folks, it's fire season.
