Fire warnings to continue in Minnesota, N.D.
Red flag fire warnings will be in effect from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today throughout eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota.
Calling it a "critical fire weather situation," the National Weather Service said the potential for rapid fire growth will be high because of dry conditions, including low relative humidity of about 20 percent and south to southerly winds between 15 and 30 mph, with gusts higher than 35 mph.
