The Red, White & Blue Fire Protection District announced Summit County’s fire danger increased to moderate due to warmer temperatures and winds drying out fuels.

Summit County does not have any fire restrictions at this time, Red, White & Blue reports.

A moderate danger means fires can start from most accidental causes. Fires that do occur are likely minor and easy to control, officials say.
