Montana’s wildfire season stretches longer and burns more severely than in decades past.

The state’s average fire season is 40 days longer than it was 30 years ago and the average number of acres burned has increased 15-fold in the last 20 years.

Gov. Steve Bullock offered these observations in a news release Monday that announced his creation by executive order of the Montana Forest Action Advisory Council.
