1 min read

Extreme fire risk conditions today in portions of east-central and northeast Minnesota have caused the National Weather Service to issue a Red Flag Warning for the following counties: Carlton, Pine and St. Louis.

A Red Flag Warning means the area is experiencing critical weather conditions that are ideal for wildfire, including strong winds and low humidity. 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 expires at 7 p.m.
