ABC News reports:
In the west, very dry and blustery conditions continue to spread the Bighorn Fire near Tucson, Arizona, where evacuations have been issued. The Bighorn Fire is only 10% contained and is more than 6,000 acres. A brush fire also broke out just east of San Diego, where evacuation orders were in effect.
Red flag warnings have now been issued for California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah on Friday. A fire weather watch has been issued for Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma as well. The gusty winds and dry conditions are expected to last through the weekend for the region.
Red flag warnings are in effect for Arizona, California, and Nevada, which means conditions are ideal for a wildfire’s combustion and rapid spread.
Are you and your family prepared for the threat of a #wildfire?
