SPOKANE, Wash. - The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for all of Eastern Washington.
The warning went into effect Monday at noon and will last until 11 p.m. Tuesday.
A Red Flag Warning means current weather conditions could lead to extreme and dangerous fire behavior. We are currently in a Red Flag Warning because we have had no rain in more than 40 days, low relative humidity and sustained high winds with the possibility of higher gusts.
Fire danger is high in Spokane, meaning fires can start easily from all causes. The Spokane Fire Department asks that the public does not conduct any open burning Tuesday and to be very careful with backyard grilling.
If you start a fire, the fire department asks you to be in attendance of it at all times and be prepared to extinguish any sparks.
