The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for areas north and west of NYC. This Red Flag Warning means a combination of dry brush and gusty wind conditions support fire danger.

Please, exercise extra caution when using outdoor gas and charcoal grills. In addition, smokers should never carelessly discard cigarettes. Immediately report a brush fire to 911.
