Red Flag Fire Warning For Southeast Wyoming On Wednesday
Much of southeast Wyoming, including Laramie, is under a Red Flag Fire Warning starting at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, August 25.
As of 8 a.m., the warning area did not include Cheyenne [see map below].
According to the National Weather Service, a Red Flag Fire Warning means:
''Warm temperatures, very low humidities, and stronger winds are expected to combine to produce an increased risk of fire danger.
-If you are allowed to burn in your area, all burn barrels must be covered with a weighted metal cover, with holes no larger than 3/4 of an inch.
-Do not throw cigarettes or matches out of a moving vehicle. They may ignite dry grass on the side of the road and become a wildfire.
-Extinguish all outdoor fires properly. Drown fires with plenty of water and stir to make sure everything is cold to the touch. Dunk charcoal in water until cold. Do not throw live charcoal on the ground and leave it.
-Never leave a fire unattended. Sparks or embers can blow into leaves or grass, ignite a fire, and quickly spread.''
