Red Flag Fire Warning Issed for Several NEA Counties
The National Weather Service has issued Red Flag fire warnings for parts of Eastern Arkansas in the KASU listening area.
The warning is in effect from late Thursday morning until 7pm tonight. Counties included in the warning are Baxter, Stone, Fulton, Sharp, Izard, Independence, & Cleburne.
The Associated Press reports the weather services says grass, vegetation, and wood in these areas will be very dry due to a very low humidity. Mixed with strong winds of up to 45 mph, fires outdoors have the potential to spread quickly.
The weather service discourages burning anything outside until the warning has been lifted.
