Elevated Fire Danger in the Region

The National Weather Service says there’s an elevated fire danger in the Region this afternoon. A Special Weather Statement says frequent wind gusts from the south up to 35 to 40 mph are expected and due to very dry conditions for much of the area this spring and the windy and warm conditions today, there is an increased risk for a more rapid spread of brushfires and grassfires.
