Red Flag Warnings for the Brainerd Area

Red Flag Warnings have been posted for the Brainerd Lakes Area. Strong winds combined with low humidity and temperatures in the 80's have prompted the warnings. These conditions and the lack of recent rain have created conditions favorable for the rapid spread of fire. Crow Wing, Cass, Aitkin and Pine Counties are all included.

No burning permits are being issued. However, foresters are asking anyone who had a camp fire in the past three days to make sure it is completely extinguished. Any outdoor activity that could create a spark, such as metal cutting, grinding or welding should be conducted with extreme caution.
