Red Flag Warning
Warm, windy weather is raising the fire danger in the Mountain West.
Right now parts of Colorado are under a Red Flag Warning. Dry, hot conditions and high winds could mean trouble if a grass fire sparks.
Winds continued to whip across the Front Range on Monday. A Red Flag Warning expired Monday evening after hurricane-force winds toppled trees and power lines over the weekend.
National forests and counties along Colorado’s Front Range and Eastern Plains are banning outside fires and fireworks as hot, dry weather keeps the fire danger high.
