Conditions ripe for fires to spread quickly

Monday isn’t a good day for burning.

Strong winds and low relative humidity has led to a Red Flag Warning from the National Weather Service. The caution against burning runs from 10 until seven Monday night.

The weather service says with wind gusts as high as 35 miles per hour, dry conditions and very low humidity, fires can grow rapidly in a hurry.
