The National Weather Service issued multiple red flag warnings Friday as a dry spring has led to a warm stretch of weather brought on by a system of high pressure. Red Flag warnings were issued from Palmer north through the Copper River Basin, the Eastern Alaska Range and the Tanana Flats including Delta and Salcha. Also on Friday, a two-acre fire broke out near Caswell Lakes. The Alaska Division of Forestry wrote in a Facebook post that the four local fire departments and a wildland crew responded and that work “is in mop up.”
