The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is warning of a high danger for the spread of fires in the region due to low humidity and high winds.

NOAA issued a Red Flag Warning for all of  Northeast Pennsylvania from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. April 3rd.

The National Weather Service says any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly. Outdoor burning is not recommended.

In New York, there is a ban on the burning of brush through May 14th due to a hightened fire danger.

In spite of the ban, Delaware County Sheriff’s officials say 54 year old Joseph Kilanowski is accused of burning wood debris on his property on East Terry Clove Road in the Town of Hamden March 30th. The fire blew out of his control and spread to a nearby wooded area.

The Delhi Fire Department quickly put the blaze out.

Kilanowski is charged under New York State Environmental Conservation Law with negligently causing a forest fire.
