…FIRE DANGER STATEMENT IN EFFECT FROM 10AM EST MONDAY TO 7PM EST
MONDAY…

There is an increased threat of fires growing out of control on
Monday due to a combination of low humidity around 30 percent or
lower during the afternoon, northwest winds gusting above 20 mph,
and dry fuels. These conditions will make it possible for fire to
spread quickly.

Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged during this time. Please
refer to your local burn permitting authority on whether you can
burn. If you do burn, use extreme caution and ensure fire
suppression equipment is readily available.
