DNR on 'red alert' for fires in Hubbard County area
The warm weather and rapid snow melt has put the Department of Natural Resources on "red alert."
"We expect to be working this weekend," Mark Carlstrom, DNR area forest supervisor, said of impending fire danger. "We hope there are no fires, but we're staffed and ready."
He urges strong caution, having just returned from a fire that spread across a mowed lawn Wednesday. "If you can postpone burning, it's a prudent decision."
