The combination of gusty winds, along with low humidity and drying fuels will lead to the increased risk, according to www.njwildfires.org
The risk in Warren and the rest of Somerset County is very high.
|Fires start easily from all causes and, immediately after ignition, spread rapidly and increase quickly in intensity. Spot fires are a constant danger. Fires burning in light fuels may quickly develop high intensity characteristics such as long-distance spotting and fire whirlwinds when they bum into heavier fuels.
