Red flag warning issued for area; no burning

The National Weather Service in Chicago has issued a red flag warning from noon to 8 p.m. Monday. Red flag warnings are issued when a combination of strong winds, low relative humidity, dry fuels and warm temperatures provide dangerous conditions for fires of any type.

With dry conditions and warm temperatures forecasted, the Streator Fire Department has put out a notice of a burning ban Tuesday. No burning will be allowed by Streator residents Tuesday.
