There’s a high risk of fire in Charlotte County this week, according to officials from the National Weather Service and the Florida Forest Service. A red flag warning was issued for critical fire weather conditions in coastal and inland Charlotte County between noon and 7 p.m. Monday.

“Essentially we have those red flag warnings out whenever we have extremely low humidity, dry conditions, and windy conditions to help so that when it does catch fire, it will rapidly move,” said NWS Meteorologist Stephen Shiveley.
