Red Flag Warning Issued for Mesa County

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for Mesa County today, including the I-70 corridor between Utah state line and the town of Eagle. Increasing SW winds today along with dry fuel conditions in the lower valleys will make open burning extremely dangerous today.

In response, the Mesa County Health Department has issued a Red Open Burning Advisory for the daytime hours of 9am to 6pm today. All open burning in the Grand Valley should be curtailed until later this week when conditions improve.
