(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – The National Weather Service is cautioning the tri-state that there is a high to very high fire danger Friday.

Winds will blow steadily from 10 to 15 MPH, with gusts up to 25 MPH. Warm temperatures will bring relatively drier air to the region, making outdoor fires easier to spark and spread.

The weather service says burning is prohibited from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Friday in unincorporated areas.

Firefighters in Aurora have already dealt with at least two brush fires this week.
