The governor of Utah, Governor Gary Herbert declared a State of Emergency effective for the entire month of July, citing dry and dangerous conditions as well as multiple active wildfires burning throughout the state on Tuesday.

In the executive order issued on Tuesday, Herbert cites high fire danger, fire restrictions and warnings in place across the state, drought declarations and extreme temperatures as reasons justifying the decision, KUTV reports.

The order also states immediate action will be required to suppress fires and mitigate post-burn flash floods, all conditions that “create potential for a disaster emergency.”

At the time the executive order was issued, there were at least seven active wildfires burning tens of thousands of acres in different parts of the state.

Firefighters in Utah found no relief from wildfires Wednesday, as conditions remained much the same as they did in the days before: hot, dry and windy — perfect weather for the blazes to grow, The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Utah’s largest wildfire — the Dollar Ridge Fire in Duchesne County — increased overnight from 30,000 acres to 40,469, according to the U.S. Forest Service. The fire will likely continue spreading throughout the day, as it burns through dry timber in the area. The fire is about 1 percent contained.

Similar conditions helped the blaze burn an area quadruple in size from Sunday into overnight Monday, destroying 20 to 30 homes and structures and prompting residents to evacuate and Gov. Gary Herbert to issue a state of emergency for all of Utah.

Officials believe that, as with many wildfires burning across the state, human activity caused the Dollar Ridge Fire.

All seven wildfires burning in Utah on Wednesday, according to the Utah Fire Info map, fell within the boundaries of “red flag” warnings. The National Weather Service issued the warnings across much of the northern, western and central parts of the state.

Red flag warnings indicate high winds, low humidity and high temperatures, all of which point to severe fire risk.
