Even though the fire danger in Laramie County Fire District #2 was only rated as ''moderate" as of Monday morning, spokesman Lew Simpson says hot, windy weather conditions are a big concern.

Simpson says the wet spring weather which caused plants to grow combined with temperatures forecast for the upper 80s to low 90s range this week could rapidly create a lot of fuel for fires in the area. Simpson is also urging people to remember to report any controlled burns, and to avoid conducting such burns when the wind is blowing.

Simpson says people should be 'extra careful" the next few days and go into their "summer fire danger" mode at least until the weather moderates.
