The National Weather Service in Valley warns residents that portions of the state are in a red flag warning regarding fire danger.
Meteorologist Cathy Zapotocny says this is partly due to an approaching front that is bringing windy conditions to the Midwest.
Zapotocny says the red flag warning extends through the center of Nebraska and includes several areas in the eastern part of the state and for western Iowa. Cities include Lincoln, Beatrice, Fremont and Tekamah. Omaha is in the extreme fire danger category.
Zapotocny says anytime we have low humidity, unusually warm days, windy conditions combined with a lot of dry grass and brush, there is a greater risk of fire.
