GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — The National Weather Service has issued a red flag fire warning for southwest Colorado.

The warning was issued Friday because of a forecast of high winds, low humidity and dry fuels.

Forecasters say warm, dry and gusty weather is expected to continue into early next week.

A red flag warning means critical fire conditions are expected or have already occurred and people need to be careful with outside fires.
