Fire officials advise against any open burning...including campfires on Friday across northern New York and Vermont. The lack of precipitation this month has led to fine fuels such as leaves...grass...and small brush to become very dry. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph with localized gusts 20 to 25 mph are expected on Friday with minimum relative humidity values in the 28 to 38 percent range. All of these factors will increase the potential for any fires that do start to spread quickly and become more difficult to contain. $$
