NH Warns Public Over Extremely High Forest Fire Danger

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire State Fire Marshal’s office says dry, windy conditions have created conditions that could lead to a large brush or forest fire, and it is warning the public to dispose of cigarettes and ashes properly.

The National Weather Service has declared Monday to be a Class 4 Red Flag Day, meaning the potential for a forest fire is very high. A fire can spread quickly, especially with temperatures approaching 90 degrees.
