Red flag warning issued for area; no burning

Minnesota firefighters brace for busy spring wildfire season

Another Red Flag Warning for today due to continued conditions that can spark wildfires.

Monday and Tuesday will see very dry conditions with mostly sunny skies and a steady wind as temperatures are expected to flirt with 70 degrees.

Burning bans remain in place in the area.

A Red Flag Warning is issued when a variety of weather factors come together to create especially unsafe wildland fire conditions. Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged.

The Red Flag Warning is for the following counties; Vernon, La Crosse, Trempealeau, Buffalo, Pepin, Dunn, Pierce, St. Croix, Polk and Burnett. The restrictions mean outdoor fires are prohibited, unless it's in a maintained campground. They urge extreme caution during these unusually risky conditions.

He said the weather service is suggesting "common sense" actions to prevent wildfires, including people to avoid burning brush or debris.

Authorities are warning residents not to light any fires, as wind and humidity could quickly spread an uncontrolled fire. Along with increased temperatures and increased wind, there is a much higher fire danger threat outdoors in this type of weather.
