National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for several area counties, which is in effect from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14.

The warning is for Wayne, Fayette and Union counties in Indiana and Preble and Darke counties in Ohio.

A red flag means outdoor burning is not recommended because weather conditions are favorable for rapid fire growth.

On Friday afternoon, Cambridge City Volunteer Fire Department announced that Cambridge City and Jackson Township will be on a burn ban starting that day for an indefinite amount of time.

Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly because of the day’s wind and low relative humidity.
