Wildfire Worries Increase In Colorado, California This Weekend

posted by Bill Strange -

High winds and heat will have fire crews across the west on edge for the next couple of days.  In southwestern Colorado a Red Flag Warning will be in effect all day Friday because of strong winds and low humidity.  That could fan the flames of the 416 Fire that's burned over 34,000 acres near Durango. 

Dangerous fire conditions are also expected in Northern California this weekend.  Forecasters say on Saturday and Sunday there will be strong winds coupled with hot temperatures, creating combustible conditions.  The main areas of concern are Napa and Sonoma Counties where deadly wildfires hit last year.
