The weather has sparked fire danger concerns in the Big Country.

Nick Dawson monitors fires in the area for the Texas A&M Forest Service.

He said sparking a flame right now is dangerous.

The fire danger will be elevated Thursday.

“Look for the lower RH’s, the winds are going to pick up a little bit. The fuels being as dry as they are right now, it’s not going to take a lot to get a spark going,” Dawson said.
