Brainerd Brush Fires on a Red Flag Day

Some nervous moments in the Brainerd Lakes Area yesterday with the Red Flag Warning. An air drop was called in Thursday afternoon to dowse a grass fire south of Brainerd. The fire consumed about one and a half acres. From there, the tanker was called to make a similar drop west of Baxter.

A Red Flag Warning is issued with strong wind, heat and low humidity combine to create explosive fire conditions.

A third of an inch of rain over-night and cooler temperatures have lessened the fire threat.
