Red Flag Warning issued for Tri-State counties

Adams, Mason, and Lewis Counties are under a Red Flag Warning beginning at 1 p.m. Wednesday until 8 p.m.

A Red Flag warning is issued when a combination of strong winds and low humidity make for more hazardous conditions in the case of a fire.

The National Weather Service says fires that develop under a Red Flag Warning are more prone to spread rapidly, and that outdoor fires are not recommended during the warning.
