Summit County fire danger increases to high

The fire danger in Summit County will move from moderate to high Friday, Sept. 10, according to Red, White & Blue Fire Protection District Deputy Chief Jay Nelson.

Nelson wrote in an email that while the county had rain last weekend, this week’s wind and low humidity caused the moisture to decrease. This decrease in fuel moisture levels resulted in an increased risk of fire.

The county has been in the moderate fire danger level since Aug. 6.
