A Red Flag Warning is in effect for much of the state until 9 p.m. That's a warning for high winds, and low humidity--which can help a fire spread quickly.
The area affects El Paso County to Gunnison and then south to the New Mexico state line including Pueblo and Huerfano Counties. Fire conditions in the area are expected to be in the critical range by Tuesday afternoon.
