Another Red Flag Warning Issued

The Portland National Weather Service has upgraded the Fire Weather Watch to a Red Flag Warning that includes all of Cowlitz County. The Red Flag Warning will remain in effect until Sunday evening.

A Red Flag Warning means that conditions are ideal for wildland fire ignition and propagation. There is still a burn ban in effect until September 30th. Click this link for more information.

Remember, every time you throw a cigarette out the window or don't properly extinguish your campfire, Smokey the Bear weeps. Have you ever seen a grown bear weep? It's awkward. Only YOU can prevent this.
