It’s Wildfire Awareness Week in Kansas. As the change to the spring pattern takes hold, the dead and dormant plants are prime┬átinder for fires. Add in low afternoon humidities and that Kansas wind and you have the recipe for rapidly-spreading rangeland fires.

In fact, NWS Dodge City posted a heads-up about tomorrow, this afternoon.
