The Black Eagle Volunteer Fire Department has raised the "fire danger level" in the area.
The agency normally posts the fire danger level to its Facebook page on Friday, but shared the following information on Thursday:
Although it's not Friday, we felt it important to get this information out ASAP.
The fire danger level for the Black Eagle Fire District is being raised immediately due to a continuing decline in moisture levels, continued high temperatures and now a prediction of a Red Flag Warning for elevated fire conditions.
What this means is any fires that start will be quick to spread and may be very difficult to contain.
We ask all citizens to report any fires by calling 911 IMMEDIATELY.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO EXTINGUISH THE FIRE YOURSELF. DOING SO MAY CAUSE YOU OR OTHERS SEVERE INJURY OR DEATH.
CALL 911 AND WAIT FOR RESPONDERS TO ARRIVE.
The fire danger level for the Black Eagle Fire District is VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER
