DURANGO, CO - (AP) - A fire burning ban is in effect throughout La Plata County.
A red-flag warning was issued today by the National Weather Service because of dry fuels, relative low humidity and high winds, with gusts ranging from 25 to 30 miles per hour.
Forecaster Joe Ramey says similar conditions are expected tomorrow.
Ramey says the warnings are coming early this year because of concerns over a drop in snow levels.
