Red Flag Warning Issued for Extreme Wildfire Conditions
Minnesota Ag Connection - 05/16/2018

Most of the north half of Minnesota was under very high fire danger Tuesday, including a Red Flag Warning issued by the National Weather Service for the following counties: Polk (west), Kittson, Roseau, Lake Of The Woods, Marshall (west), Marshall (east), Beltrami (north), Pennington, Red Lake, Polk (east), Clearwater (north), and Koochiching.

A Red Flag Warning means the area is experiencing extreme weather conditions that are ideal for wildfire, including dry vegetation and gusty winds. Do not burn while the Red Flag Warning remains in effect and check any burning done recently to ensure the fire is out. Any spark could become a wildfire under Red Flag conditions.

The Red Flag Warning expired at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

It was the second warning since late last week to be issued.
