Red Flag alert covers SC

March 17, 2013

A SC Forestry Commission Red Flag fire weather alert now covers all of South Carolina. Conditions yesterday in some areas including low relative humidity and warm temperatures contributed to an elevated danger level. According to Oconee Fire Chief Charlie King, those factors support the ignition and spread of wildfire. The Red Flag alert does not outlaw debris burning in most un-incorporated jurisdictions, but the advisory strongly encourages South Carolinians to postpone burning. However, some local ordinances do ban burning during a Forestry Commission alert.
