BOISE, ID –The public will be able to access fire restriction information from a new hotline with just a simple phone call to 1-844-ID-FIRES or 1-844-433-4737.

The Idaho Interagency Fire Partners established the fire restrictions hotline to help the public access the most current information across Idaho. There are eight fire restrictions areas in Idaho and some of the areas are broken into smaller areas that may reflect different fuel type or elevation. The following are the eight fire restriction areas:

- Coeur d’Alene Fire Restriction Area
- Grangeville Fire Restriction Area
- Payette Fire Restriction Area
- Wilderness Fire Restriction Area
- Boise Fire Restriction Area
- South Central Idaho Fire Restriction Area
- Central Idaho Fire Restriction Area
- Eastern Idaho Fire Restriction Area

A detailed map of all the fire restrictions information can be found at http://idahofireinfo.blogspot.com/p/fire-restrictions.html. In addition, the website contains information on wildfire activities, county burn bans, burn permits, prevention and safety tips, aviation safety, smoke management, and current fire weather.
