Description

…Elevated Fire Danger Through Early This Evening… A combination of dry fine fuels, such as grass and dead brush, relative humidity values in the 25 to 35 percent range and southwest winds gusting as high as 35 mph will increase the risk for grass, brush and ditch fires, as well as unmonitored campfire, to spread rapidly out of control this afternoon. Burning is not recommended. Make sure you are following any local laws that may be in place regarding burning in your location. If you must burn, ensure that the fire is constantly monitored and several options are available to quickly extinguish the fire. Contact your local fire department with any questions and if control of the fire is lost.
