The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag warning to indicate high fire risk in Bernalillo County on Monday from now until 9 p.m.

Winds are expected to be from the west at 20 to 25 miles per hour, with gusts up to 45 mph.

Relative humidity will be low, from 4 to 10 percent. Red flag warnings mean that weather conditions - with high winds, dry fuel and low humidity - are ripe for a catastrophic fire.

No open burning is permitted. Use caution with any open flame or spark-producing equipment and dispose of chemicals in appropriate containers.

If you ever have any questions about whether it is okay to burn outside, check the Bernalillo County Fire Department Burn Advisory Hotline at 468-7200.
