There's some good news when it comes to the threat of wildfires this summer.
Federal agencies predict an above-average fire season for the Rocky Mountain region. Agencies, including the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management, say the danger is still there but it isn't as threatening as 2 years ago when several hundred thousand acres were burned in the state.
An assessment released by the agencies reports drought conditions have improved in the past year in Colorado and southern Wyoming.
