Sheridan County fire warden, Bill Biastoch, has assigned red flag fire conditions to the area. He said the combination of extreme heat and high winds is contributing to fire danger in the county.
Biastoch said he needs everyone's help to keep wildfires from starting and spreading in our area by using any ignitions. Therefore, the use of fireworks is strongly discouraged along with the use of any other ignition sources.
He said fire restrictions are likely within the week. Stay tuned to Sheridan Media for the most current fire status updates.
