Vermont Dept. of Forests, Parks and Recreation has issued a Red Flag Warning to cease the issue of burn permits through May 19th. A Red Flag Warning means there are critical fire weather conditions including low relative humidity, high winds with little to no precipitation in the past few days. Fires that ignite during these conditions spread rapidly and with high intensity. The ban may be revoked or extended based upon weather conditions.
